Tablas Creek Red Rhone Blend Paso Robles Côtes de Tablas 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Côtes de Tablas has a juicy, berry nose of currants, raspberries, licorice and spice. The mouth is full of rich, sweet Grenache fruit showing good acidity and a long finish laced with licorice.

This was a pleasant surprise. For less than $10, it provided quite a few classic Bordeaux flavors. Great ripe cherry, red plums, cassis and just a hint of leather come through on both the nose and palate. Ripe and full in the mouth. A nice old world style with a hint of new world fruit.

Beautiful plum, berry and raspberry aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with refined tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very nicely done. Best after 2009.

Although the 2003 Giusto di Notri a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 25% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc may not quite reach the level of the 2004 it too is outstanding. Boasting an attractive set of super-ripe fruit earth herb and well-integrated oak sensations it is a plump juicy Giusto di Notri that should provide its best drinking within the next few years. Like so many 2003s it suffers from slightly hard drying tannins but there is enough fruit to provide balance and the tannins have become better integrated since I last tasted this wine a few months ago. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2013. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Having exploded in quality, the 2003 is now much more massive, concentrated, and powerful than it was a year ago. Now one of the top right bank wines of the vintage, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as a bold, dramatic fragrance of melted chocolate, expresso roast, smoke, plums, blackberries, and black currants. Full-bodied and rich, with low acidity, high tannin, loads of glycerin, and massive, multilayered flavors, this brilliant effort (tasted on three separate occasions) reminded me of the prodigious 1990. Anticipated maturity: 2009–2022.

This favorite of ours comes from the very heart of Bordeaux’s Graves district, and is a generous blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, aged 12 to 18 months in barrel. The strength of this wine lies in its complexity of chocolate, cedar and coffee aromas and flavors.
