Winery Notes:

The Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas is a blend of five red Rhône varietals: Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Counoise, and for the first time Terret Noir. 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, with the brightness and fresh acidity of Grenache, the structure and meatiness of Mourvèdre and small additions of Counoise and Terret Noir for complexity.

There's a strongly stony streak on the nose of this blend of 40% Syrah, 33% Grenache, 21% Mourvèdre, 3% Counoise and 3% Terret Noir, which also offers dried berry and purple-flower aromas. The palate is earthy and full of rocky flavors, yet also offers black-raspberry, red-plum and wild herb elements.

Medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Patelin de Tablas is a blend of 40% Syrah, 33% Grenache, 21% Mourvèdre, 3% Counoise and 3% Terret Noir. It retains some rubbery aromas with notes of tar, soil and cassis. The medium to full-bodied palate has restrained flavors with a grainy frame, good freshness and an understated finish. 2,400 cases produced.

Lively and approachable yet elegantly structured, with floral raspberry, smoky bay leaf and black pepper flavors that finish with zesty tannins. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Counoise and Terret. Drink now through 2027. 2,400 cases made.
