About Tablas Creek Vineyard
This important estate in Paso Robles, a joint venture between the Perrin family of Châteauneuf du Pape and their long-time importer, Robert Haas, planted its vineyards in the 1990s with clonal selections taken from the southern Rhône Valley. The organically farmed, 120 acre plot contains all the usual suspects: Mourvedre, Syrah, and Grenache, plus Roussane, Marsanne, and Viognier...
94-95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2013
(70% mourvedre, 20% grenache and 10% syrah): Bright violet color. Presents a heady, expansive bouquet of black and blue fruit preserves, incense and smoky Indian spices. Smooth, seamless and deeply pitched blueberry and cherry-cola flavors are complicated by notes of licorice and allspice, with a floral pastille note creeping out on the back half. Really stains the palate, finishing with superb clarity and length and velvety, harmonious tannins.
