2007 Tablas Creek "Esprit de Beaucastel" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1050632 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of 46% Mourvèdre, 31% Syrah, 18% Grenache and 5% Counoise, the 2007 Esprit de Beaucastel has a truly sensational bouquet of black cherries, saddle leather, pepper and wild herbs (thyme, rosemary). Gorgeous on the palate, with full-bodied richness, and a silky, elegant texture, it's a killer wine that readers will be lucky to have in the cellar. Inner quote mark (7/2018)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The prodigious 2007 Esprit de Beaucastel is a blend of 44% Mourvedre, 29% Grenache, 21% Syrah, and the rest Counoise. A very great wine, very much in the mold of its French cousin, Chateau Beaucastel, the wine has a saturated ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of melted licorice, charcoal, blueberry, and blackberries intermixed with freshly sliced mushrooms, tree bark, and pepper. Spicy, dense, full-bodied, and extraordinarily complex, yet at the same time well-delineated and fresh, it should drink well for 10-15+ years. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Vivid red. Impressively complex bouquet melds raspberry, cherry pit, cassis and incense, with smoky Indian spice and herbal qualities adding complexity. Rich, palate-coating red and dark berry preserve flavors verge on decadent but are nicely framed by velvety tannins. A sweet floral note come up with air and carries through the strikingly long, juicy and spicy finish. I'd serve this powerful, deeply fruity wine with braised lamb. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2009)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich, dry and full-bodied, with loamy earth, dried berry, mineral, anise and black licorice flavors that run deep and persistent, layered and concentrated, ending with a long, tight finish. *Top Wines 100 of 2010* (JL) Inner quote mark (2/2010)
