2013 Tablas Creek "Esprit de Tablas Blanc" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1222549 91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Green-tinged yellow. Ripe pear and nectarine aromas show very good depth and clarity, turning spicier with air. Smooth, warm and open-knit, offering an array of pit and citrus fruit flavors that tighten up on the back half. A floral note comes up on the fragrant, focused, fruity finish. (JD) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Probably the leanest example of this cuvee I've tasted, the 2013 Esprit de Tablas Blanc checks in as 71% Roussanne, 21% Grenache Blanc and 8% Picpoul that saw 10 months in mostly neutral foudre. It offers pretty, salty minerality in its leafy herbs, citrus and stone fruits to go with a medium-bodied, juicy, straightforward (by this cuvee's standards anyway) personality. This cuvee has a long track record of aging gracefully, but I'd lean toward drinking this over the coming 4-5 years. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This blend of 71% Roussanne, 21% Grenache Blanc and 8% Picpoul Blanc offers cut Meyer lemon, tangerine and pink-grapefruit aromas on the nose, along with the promise of a creamy palate. Instead, the palate is quite tight and restrained, starting tart but opening toward lemon rinds and pear flesh, and wiping up clean on the finish. (MK) Inner quote mark (1/2016)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Toasty melon, pear and almond notes are spicy and complex, with citrus zest and chamomile details on the finish. Moderate acidity. Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Picpoul Blanc. (MW, Web-2016) Inner quote mark
