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

SKU #1269098 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Editors' Choice* This blend of 55% Syrah, 29% Grenache,10% Mourvèdre and 6% Counoise offers boisterous yet elegant aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and dried violet that are met with hints of crushed marjoram and white pepper. Once sipped, mulberry and exotic plum flavors mesh with wild mint on a brooding yet bright and fresh palate.  (10/2016)

91 points Vinous

 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)

United States

- 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.

California

- 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.
