2018 Tablas Creek "Esprit de Tablas Blanc" Paso Robles White Rhône Blend

SKU #1504712 94-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Limpid, chartreuse-hued straw. A highly complex bouquet evokes fresh citrus and orchard fruits, buttered toast and pungent flowers, and hints of fennel and salty minerals emerge with air. Shows superb depth and energy, offering juicy orange, pear nectar, sweet butter and chamomile flavors that firm up slowly on the back half. Powerful yet graceful in style, displaying sharp focus and minerally thrust on a strikingly long finish that features lingering floral and orchard fruit notes. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

Outer quote mark Tablas Creek’s top white has been roussanne-dominant for several vintages now, and they’ve learned how to capture the variety’s elegant fleshiness without letting it get blowsy, propping it up with higher-acid whites, like grenache blanc, picpoul, clairette and picardin. This wine smells of apple pulp and honey at first go, giving up little but seductive texture. On the second day open, the wine becomes grand, the weight of roussanne comfortable and powerful, with a lemony, crisp apple contour. Inner quote mark

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark It’s always exciting to see where Tablas Creek uses its newly imported Rhône varieties. This blend includes 66% Roussanne, 21% Grenache Blanc, 8% Picpoul Blanc, 3% Picardin and 2% Clairette Blanche, and begins with aromas of peach, Meyer lemon skin, lime blossom and sea salt. The palate is complex, with baked pear, cinnamon and citrus, finishing with a hint of nuts. *Editors’ Choice* (MK) Inner quote mark (2/2021)
