2016 Tablas Creek "Patelin de Tablas" Paso Robles Rosé

SKU #1298820 91 points Vinous

 Pale pink. Mineral-accented strawberry and blood orange aromas are complemented by a sexy floral nuance. Nervy and focused on the palate, offering vibrant red berry and citrus fruit flavors that show a delicate touch and stretch out and deepen with air. Concentrated yet lithe, finishing with lingering florality, a touch of orange zest and impressive persistence. (JR)  (11/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Blended of 73% Grenache, 17% Mourvèdre, 6% Counoise and 4% Syrah, the 2016 Rosé Patelin de Tablas has a very pale salmon-pink color and nose of white pepper, sautéed herbs and raspberry leaves over wild strawberries and Bing cherries. Light-bodied, dry, crisp and refreshing, it has an understated vitality and finishes on a peppery note. (LPB)  (9/2017)

Direct to press rose with beautiful color from resting on Mourvedre and Counoise for twelve hours. Cherry and strawberry fruits shine, with rose petal and lifted herbal notes. Great acid and balance. It was really tough to choose a favorite rose from Tablas Creek this vintage!

The latest rosé offering from Tablas Creek is a blend of estate-grown Grenache, Mourvedre, Counoise and Syrah. The nose offers floral notes, nectarine and grapefruit. On the palate you can find yellow peach and raspberry nicely balanced with juicy acid, a lemon drop salty characteristic and wonderful minerality.

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.
