The 2015 Patelin de Tablas Blanc is very Rhone-like on the nose, with notes of lemon pith, sarsaparilla, crushed rock and apricot. In the mouth, it's intensely juicy with green apple and pink grapefruit, a saline creaminess on the mid-palate, and mouth-watering acidity on the finish, leaving lingering flavors of sea spray and sweet spice. Drink now and for the next 2-3 years.

Wine EnthusiastThis blend of 56% Grenache Blanc, 23% Viognier, 12% Roussanne and 9% Marsanne from nine vineyards offers a pretty nose that mixes Key lime, honeydew, just-ripe nectarine and lily florality. It's bright and fresh on the tightly wound and texturally intriguing sip, with lime pith and lemongrass flavors.

VinousPale yellow. Anjou pear and tangerine on the incisive, mineral-tinged nose. Silky, taut and focused, offering lemon pith, green apple and honeysuckle flavors and a touch of fennel. Closes with firm grip and very good, tangy persistence, leaving floral and orchard fruit notes behind.

Wine AdvocateThe entry level white is the 2015 Patelin de Tablas Blanc, which is mostly Grenache Blanc, yet incorporates 23% Viognier, 13% Roussanne and 9% Marsanne. Brought up all in stainless steel, it's a fresh, exotic, medium-bodied effort that gives up lots of Meyer lemon, orange blossom and salty notes. Buy it by the case and enjoy bottles over the coming year or two.
