SKU #1130601 90 points Wine Spectator

 Zesty yet delicate in style, offering a light peach hue, plus aromas of dried cherry and wild flower, with crisp flavors of apricot, watermelon and loamy spice. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Counoise. Drink now.  (5/ 2013)

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Made in a fresh, dry Provencal style, the 2012 Rose Patelin de Tablas sports a light salmon color to go with juicy, edgy aromas of orange blossom, citrus rind and wild herbs on the nose. Medium-bodied, round and supple on the palate with juicy, refreshing acidity, it's hard to resist and is a perfect summer quaffer.  (6/ 2013)

89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Pale orange-pink. Zesty orange peel and strawberry scents show very good clarity and pick up a deeper cherry quality with air. Dry and racy on the palate, boasting good lift and cut to its bitter cherry and red berry flavors. The citrus note comes back on the taut, sharply focused finish.  (7/ 2013)

K&L Notes

75% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and 5% Counoise, from the California outpost of Rhône great, Château de Beaucastel. You know it's going to be Rhône-style rosé done right.

- 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.
