Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Proprietary Blend Wine 2011
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.
Very nice, smooth Paso Robles blend of 52% Syrah, 29% Grenache, 18% Mourvedre, 1% Counoise. Well balanced with nice dark cherry, plum, slight smoke, smooth tannins and clean, crisp acidity.
Tablas Creek Patelin Rouge 2010 A partnership in Paso Robles between the Perrin family from the legendary Chateauneuf du Pape winery Chateau Beaucastel and the founder of wine importer Vineyard Brands, Robert Haas, Tablas Creek is creating Rhone-style wines in California by way of France. They even brought the vines over from France and, after a three-year waiting and testing period, were allowed to begin planting the vineyard. When you taste a wine like the Patlin Rouge, you can understand how it was worth the wait. A blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, and Counoise from Tablas Creek’s vineyards and other prestigious sites in Paso Robles, it’s a red wine with a little meatiness lended by the Mourvedre to go along with the bright Grenache and brooding Syrah. Certainly a wine that would pair nicely with lamb, as well as being from a winery with a great story behind it.

The 2011 Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas tasted out of barrel and a blend of 52% Syrah 29% Grenache 18% Mourvhdre 1% Counoise looks to be very good to possibly outstanding. It possesses a lively supple and soft profile with aromas of bright cherry and raspberry flowers and sweet spice to go with a medium-bodied elegant and lightly textured palate. It will drink well on release and be a crowd pleaser for 3-5 years. Rhone Report The.
Bright ruby. Pungent raspberry and cherry pit on the nose, with dark chocolate and violet notes adding complexity. Juicy red fruit flavors are energized by tangy acidity, picking up sweetness with air. Shows a zesty mineral quality on the long, juicy finish, which shows only a hint of tannins. This energetic wines drinks very well right now.
Looking at the 2011 reds and Paso Robles’ take on a Cotes du Rhone (and a good one), the 2011 Patelin de Tablas (52% Syrah, 29% Grenache, 18% Mourvedre and a splash of Counoise) offers up a great bouquet of crunchy black cherry fruit, roasted herbs, pan drippings and licorice that gives way to a medium-bodied, fresh and lively palate feel. Upfront, loaded with fruit, and yet also lively and fresh, this beauty should be purchased by the case and consumed over the coming 3–4 years. Drink now–2017.
