2021 Tablas Creek Vineyards Patelin de Tablas, Paso Robles, USA
$27.99 USD $378.00 USD
The Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas is a Paso Robles take on a classic Rhône blend: Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Counoise, with a small addition of the dark, smoky Tannat grape. The wine incorporates fruit from several of the top Rhône vineyards in Paso Robles, each vineyard selected for its quality. Like many red wines from the Rhône Valley, it is based on the dark fruit, mineral and spice of Syrah. To that Syrah, we incorporate the brightness and fresh acidity of Grenache, the structure and meatiness of Mourvèdre, the dark smokiness and firm structure of Tannat, and a small addition of Counoise for complexity.
Rated 91 Points Vinous, Josh Raynolds
Light, bright yellow. Ripe orchard and pit fruits, honey and a building floral note on the perfumed nose. In a round, silky and open-knit style, displaying very good heft and surprising energy to the subtly sweet pear and peach nectar and honeysuckle flavors. Finishes long and smooth, with more pit fruit and repeating florality.
