2005 Tablas Creek "Panoplie" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1056338 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tablas Creek’s top red is the 350-case 2005 Panoplie (composed of 70% Mourvedre, 25% Grenache, and 5% Syrah). This is the most compelling Mourvedre-dominated wine made in California, if not the New World. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by a stunning bouquet of smoky, gamy, Peking duck, fresh mushrooms, burning embers, and loads of black fruits. This dense, full-bodied, tannic 2005 is the California equivalent of the luxury cuvee of Chateau Beaucastel, the Hommage a Jacques Perrin. Give it 1-2 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 15+. (RP) Inner quote mark (7/2008)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright purple. Hugely aromatic, exotic bouquet of dark fruit liqueur, floral oil and incense. Very heady stuff, with sweet cherry and blueberry flavors complicated by candied licorice, violet pastille and mocha. Deepens and develops greater sweetness with air, finishing with outstanding breadth and cling. Wilder and more floral than the "basic" Esprit, with more elegance to boot. Inner quote mark (11/2007)
