External Reviews for Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Rouge
The 2012 Patelin de Tablas checks in as a value-priced blend of 53% Syrah, 27% Grenache, 18% Mourvedre and 2% Counoise. It gives up loads of ripe cherries and darker-styled friuts, wild flowers, licorice and hints of earth in its forward, juicy and Cotes du Rhone-like profile. It’s a delicious quaffer to enjoy over the coming couple of years.
Brilliant ruby. Zesty redcurrant, cherry and floral aromas are deepened by notes of licorice and cola. Concentrated red fruit flavors show an appealing sweetness and pick up a spicy nuance with air. Juicy, penetrating and seamless on the finish, which is framed by supple, harmonious tannins. This wine delivers outstanding value.
