Tablas Creek Esprit Beacastel Red 2012

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Rustic red and black berry fruit with smoke and pepper with dried Provencal herbs and a nice, floral quality on the nose. On the palate, a great, elegant feel. Good weight and structure. Nicely balanced. Great red and black fruit flavors. Very nice! 94 pts. 9/1/12 at winery

The 2009 Esprit de Beaucastel tasted from foudre is very very young. The wine literally explodes on the palate with a rush of dark fruit enshrouded within a wall of muscular tannin. The 2009 is a dark inward Esprit that will require patience but when the wine opens up it will be a jewel. Actually it already is. In 2009 the blend is 40% Mourvedre 28% Syrah 27% Grenache and 5% Counoise. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. -AG Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2009 Esprit de Beaucastel, tasted from foudre, is very, very young. The wine literally explodes on the palate with a rush of dark fruit enshrouded within a wall of muscular tannin. The 2009 is a dark inward Esprit that will require patience, but ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2009 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel 1500ml
