2008 Tablas Creek "Panoplie" Paso Robles Rhône Red

SKU #1074397 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Esprit de Beaucastel ‘Panoplie’ flows with the essence of dark plums, black cherries, licorice and leather. It is bigger, richer and darker than the straight Esprit, with more inner palate sweetness and sheer power. Tar, spices, iron, crushed rocks and a host of other dark aromas and flavors give the Panoplie much of its distinctive brooding, inward personality. In 2008 the Panoplie is 54% Mourvedre, 29% Grenache and 17% Syrah. This is a fabulous effort from Tablas Creek. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a layered red with firm and silky tannins with dark berries and minerals with hints of flowers. Full yet racy and refined. Very long and beautiful. 54% Mourvedre, 29% Grenache, and 17% Syrah. This needs another two to three years of bottle age to soften. The Mourvedre makes it. Inner quote mark (10/2011)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Ruby-red. A drop-dead, complex bouquet displays red and dark berry preserves, incense, rose oil and Asian spices. Sappy, expansive and pure, with deeply concentrated but lively raspberry and mulberry flavors, along with a strong floral pastille quality. Blends power with vibrancy smoothly and finishes with resonating floral, spice and red fruit notes. Inner quote mark (11/2010)
