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...
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2013
(52% grenache blanc, 27% viognier, 16% roussanne and 5% marsanne; all stainless steel): Light yellow. Deeply pitched orchard and pit fruit scents and flavors are lifted and sharpened by notes of lemon pith, white flowers and ginger. Juicy, incisive and refreshingly bitter, with a suave blend of richness and vivacity. A smoky nuance comes up on the finish, which shows strong cut and subtle herbacity. This will be highly adaptable at the table, especially with grilled poultry or fish, which is no surprise given its southern Rhone bloodline.
