2014 Tablas Creek "Patelin de Tablas" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1269098 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 An elegantly integrated dark-red-cherry component distinguishes the nose of this blend of 40% Mourvèdre, 35% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Counoise, with hints of sagebrush and baking spice. The food-friendly palate combines dark-berry flavors with dried herbs, graphite and light sarsaparilla, with well-integrated acidity and a silky yet firm texture. *Editors' Choice* (MK)  (10/2016)

 Brilliant red. High-pitched aromas of ripe red berries, cherry and fresh flowers; bright mineral and peppery spice scents build in the glass. Energetic and appealingly sweet, offering intense raspberry and lavender pastille flavors that are sharpened and lifted by tangy acidity. Silky tannins give shape to the clinging finish, which leaves notes of allspice and minerals behind. There's fabulous value here. (JR)  (9/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Reminding me of a quality Cotes du Rhone with its darker berry fruits, pepper, earth and wild herbs, the 2014 Patelin de Tablas (56% Syrah, 29% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and the rest Counoise) is medium-bodied, juicy and charming. It's an impeccably balanced red that's ideal for drinking over the coming 4-5 years.. (JD)  (8/2016)

Perfumey, fresh red berry fruits abound, with rose petal and savory background notes. Great freshness and tension again, with wet stone and medium tanin to wrap it up. Definitely young at tasting (3/15) and will need a few more months to open up. Always a fantastic deal!

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
