2015 Tablas Creek "Côtes de Tablas" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1298821 92 points Vinous

 Brilliant ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented red fruits and candied flowers on the highly perfumed nose. Silky and focused on the palate, offering juicy, appealingly sweet raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors that deepen with aeration. Shows good energy and silky texture on a very long, spicy finish framed by supple, harmonious tannins. This graceful wine should show well on the young side but has the balance to age gracefully as well. (JR)  (11/2017)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A blend of 39% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 16% Counoise and 10% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Cote de Tablas sports a pale to medium garnet-purple color and expressive black raspberry, blackberry and red currant nose with hints of Chinese five spice and Sichuan pepper. Medium-bodied, firm and chewy in the mouth, the palate is filled with red and black fruit layers and finishes with an herbal lift. (LPB)  (9/2017)

90 points Rhone Report

 The 2015 Cotes de Tablas is largely Grenache (39%), with the balance 35% Syrah, 15% Counoise and 10% Mourvèdre. Like all the wines from this estate, it's a lighter ruby colored and offers a pretty, elegant, medium-bodied and perfumed style to go with classic black cherry, kirsch, currants, leafy herbs and pepper. It picks up a terrific minerality with time in the glass, has ripe tannin and good acidity. The reality is it's not far off the quality of the more expensive cuvees, and it's the smart buy here.

39% Grenache / 35% Syrah / 16% Counoise / 10% Mourvedre Ripe raspberry and bing cherry fruits, with white pepper, smoked meat, and wild game notes with some serious grip on the finish. There is a freshness and lift to this wine that gives a focus and precision that kept our attention. Seriously tasty release of Tablas this vintage!

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.

Sub-Region:

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.
