2015 Tablas Creek "Côtes de Tablas Blanc" Paso Robles White Rhône Blend

SKU #1275641 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Cote de Tablas Blanc, which includes less Viognier than normal, checks in as an even split of Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne. It's a perfumed, elegant and textured white that offers lots of citrus and saltiness as well as more background notes of chamomile, flowers and spice. It will shine on the dinner table, and while I'd lean toward drinking bottles over the coming couple of years, it will evolve for longer. (JD)  (8/2016)

91 points Vinous

 Light bright yellow. Smoky aromas of poached pear, honey and pungent flowers, accompanied by a hint of succulent herbs in the background. Pliant and sappy in the mouth, offering subtly sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors and a refreshing jolt of bitter citrus pith. Closes with very good energy, clarity and persistence, leaving a suave floral note behind. (JR)  (9/2016)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Transparent and aromatic, with roasted pineapple, pear, peach and tangerine flavors that are bold and spicy. Smooth and juicy on the finish, graced by white flower aromas. Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Roussanne. (MW)  (2/2017)

United States

- 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.


- 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.
