"Serves up a pleasing mix of ripe, vibrant watermelon, supple black and red licorice, wild berry, grilled meat and sanguine flavors. Full-bodied, complex and layered, with lots of berry flavors on the finish. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and Counoise. Drink now through 2018. 4,900 cases made." ~ J.L.

"39% Syrah, 36% Grenache, 22% Mourvedre, and 3% Counoise
The Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas is a blend of four red Rhone varietals: Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and Counoise. The wine incorporates fruit from seven top Rhone vineyards in Paso Robles, each vineyard selected for its quality. Like many red wines from the Rhone Valley, it is based on the dark fruit, mineral and spice of Syrah, with the brightness and fresh acidity of Grenache, the structure and meatiness of Mourvedre and a small addition of Counoise for complexity.
The 2010 Patelin de Tablas marries the spice, mineral and structure of Syrah with the generous fruit of Grenache, the backbone of Mourvedre and the brightness of Counoise. Drink it now or over the next decade." ~ Winery notes
