Tablas Creek Vineyard, Côtes de Tablas 2016, Paso Robles, California

Tasting Note: A mostly straightforward GSM blend that is filled with concentrated fruit that sneaks up from behind.

Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of cranberry, strawberry, red plum with a side of red currant.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied GSM blend is mostly red-fruit oriented with medium tannin and tons of bright, red fruit.

Bottle Note: Grenache 55%, Syrah 25%, Mourvedre 13%, Counoise 7%. Tablas Creek Vineyard founded in the limestone hills of western Paso Robles by the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel and Robert Haas of Vineyard Brands, is dedicated to sustainably farmed wines from grape varieties traditional to France’s Rhone Valley. The Côtes de Tables showcases the rich fruit and freshness of grenache, balanced by the structure and mineral of syrah, the earth and spice of mourvedre and the brambly wildness of counoise.
