Tablas Creek Mourvedre 2011
Interesting 100% mourvedre from Tablas. Not very fruit forward, more of the tar, leather and spice. The fruit that is there is dried black cherry and ripe black plum. The tannins are fairly grainy and pronounced and the finish is of medium length.Add winemaker's notes
Tablas Creek, founded by the Perrin brothers of Chateau de Beaucastel and Robert Haas of Vineyard Brands, produces organically farmed, estate-grown Rhone varietals and blends in the limestone clay soils of west Paso Robles.
Interesting 100% mourvedre from Tablas. Not very fruit forward, more of the tar, leather and spice. The fruit that is there is dried black cherry and ripe black plum. The tannins are fairly grainy and pronounced and the finish is of medium length.
Pretty lavender nose with purple fruits with violets and other purple flowers. Flavors of dark red fruit, leather, earth and game with light pepper and hints of smoke. 91 pts. 9/1/12 at winery
Nose of creamy fruit and milk chocolate. Balanced, well-integrated, smoky, with deep rich ripe neither sour nor sweet fruit (cherry, berry, and a bit of plum), leather, earth, and hint of mineral. Finishes of deep fruit with a hint of herbs and earth. Oh just delicious, wish it was a bit less pricey. Medium body, acid, and tannin. Dry to off-dry. Well done Tablas.
Classic. Beautiful perfume of flowers and red fruit, which turns decidedly in the direction of violets. Rich red fruits in the flavors. Nice, gritty tannins and great acidity. The aromas pick up smoky notes with air.
Meaty, plum, and spice aromas and flavors. Neat espresso finish. Big, spicy, but balanced. Would convince Mourvedre skeptics this grape was worth a tumble.
Decent but not great.
