2016 Tablas Creek "Patelin de Tablas" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1398883 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has a very pretty, spicy nose with black pepper, brambleberry pie, dried thyme and sage, iodine, licorice and bark. Medium-bodied with bright acidity, tangy fruit and a fresh, medium-chewy finish. Drink now or hold. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Lurid ruby-red. Powerful, spice-accented aromas of dark berries and violet, joined by a smoky quality that builds in the glass. Chewy and broad on the palate, offering sappy black currant and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of dark chocolate. Youthfully tannic on the finish, which leaves spice and cherry pit notes behind. This is a pretty serious example of an entry-level bottling. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This blend of 52% Syrah, 31% Grenache, 11% Counoise and 6% Mourvèdre is a complete success. Fresh aromas of carnations, purple flowers, crushed cranberries, plump berries and dried sage lead into a taut palate of red plums, red cherries and potpourri spice. *Editors’ Choice* (MK) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Patelin de Tablas will be released later this year, and it's really beginning to become expressive, bursting from the glass with aromas of blackberry, raspberries, cracked pepper and Provence herbs. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, supple and juicy, with a lovely core of fruit, youthfully chewy tannins and a nicely pure finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Moving to the 2016s, most of which were tasted from bottle, the 2016 Patelin de Tablas sports a deeper ruby/purple color as well as classic Rhône-like notes of ground pepper, sappy flowers, violets, and darker berry fruits. A blend of 52% Syrah, 31% Grenache, 11% Counoise, and the rest Mourvèdre, it’s a delicious, well-made red to drink over the coming 3-4 years. Inner quote mark (11/2018)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Zesty and full of snappy flavors, offering lively black raspberry, smoky herb and cracked pepper flavors. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2024. (TF) Inner quote mark (10/2018)
