“This 11-vineyard blend of 5% Syrah, 31% Grenache, 14% Mourvédre and 4% Counoise represents an excellent value in the realm of expertly balanced but boisterously flavored wines. The fruity nose shows smashed raspberry, boysenberry, violet and potpourri, leading into a lively palate full of rose petals, exotic red cherries and turned earth. It’s easy to drink yet intellectual as well."-Wine Enthusiast Editor’s Choice

“A spunky blend, with personality, o ering a lively core of blackberry, licorice and smoky, cracked pepper avors. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and Counoise. Drink now through 2023.”-WS

“As with previous vintages the Patelin de Tablas is Syrah heavy and the full blend is as follows: 51% Syrah, 31% Grenache, 14% Mourvedre, and 4% Counoise. The grapes are sourced from four distinct regions in Paso Robles and from some of the very best Rhone vineyards in the appellation.”-BE
The 2015 Patelin de Tablas has a savory, dark, Syrah-driven nose of blackberries, crushed rock, menthol and saddle leather, with a little sweet lift like honey graham crackers. The mouth shows black cherry, loam, and pepper spice, with chalky tannins and flavors of cranberry and freshly turned earth that come out on the finish. Delicious now, but with the substance and balance to age for up to a decade.
Rich, smooth blend. Not super silky but good.
