Rich and honeyed aromas of white peach jam, melon and citrus pith show on the nose of this blend of 48 Grenache Blanc, 22 Viognier, 13 Roussanne, 12 Marsanne and 5 Clairette Blanche. There is extreme grip to the palate, where white-flower flavors meet with Asian pear, lemon and underripe watermelon.-WE

Blended from estate-grown and purchased fruit, this is based on grenache blanc, along with viognier, roussanne, marsanne and clairette blanche. It starts off plump, with sweet pear and peach flavors, then finishes firm and wheaty, with a pleasing bitterness. Chill it for poached chicken breast and endive.-W&S

Wine Spectator 90
A generous mix of juicy peach, yellow apple and ripe melon flavors, with details of Dragon Well tea, dried pineapple and lemon sherbet on the finish, showing tremendous harmony. Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne and Clairette Blanche.-WS

Patelin de Tablas Blanc is intensely Rhone- like on the nose, with notes of honeysuckle, spiced pear, nectarine, spearmint, and sweet spice. In the mouth, its lush but vibrant with peach pit, honeycrisp apple, and orange zest flavors, and a saline mid-palate. Bright acidity softens into creamy richness on the finish, leaving lingering flavors of sweet spice.-Winemaker Notes

Tablas Creek is a pioneer of Californias Rhone movement. Founded in 1989, it is the culmination of a friendship between two of the international wine communitys leading families dating back to 1967: the Perrin family of Chateau de Beaucastel and the Haas family of Vineyard Brands. After a four-year search, the partners chose Paso Robles, California for its many similarities to the Southern Rhone and began the lengthy process of importing vine cuttings, building a grapevine nursery, and creating an estate vineyard from the ground up. Today, the vineyards at Tablas Creek are proudly Biodynamic and organic certified by Demeter USA.-Winery Notes

Tablas Creek Vineyards

View all from Tablas Creek Vineyards
Tablas Creek VineyardsThe Perrins of Chateau de Beaucastel and Robert Haas, their importer since 1970, founded Tablas Creek Vineyard in 1990. They chose their 1600-foot elevation site in West Paso Robles' Las Tablas because of its chalky clay soils and its climate similar to the southern Rhone Valley. They imported selected French cuttings of Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah and Counoise and multiplied, grafted and planted their own vines, which they farm organically. This blended wine, in the image of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, is 100% estate-grown and bottled.
