Tablas Creek Red Rhone Blend Paso Robles Esprit de Beaucastel 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"A blend of 38% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 36% Syrah, and the rest Counoise, the 2008 Esprit de Beaucastel has notes of graphite, damp earth, forest floor, underbrush, and loads of blue and red fruits. A distinctively peppery, spicy, earthy wine with medium to full body, this will be an early drinker and best consumed in its first 5-7 years of life...91-93" WA 08/10

Excellent white Rhone blend from Paso. This has that nice tropical fruit profile along with a hint of butterscotch, almond and honey. Still fresh and going strong for an '08. There is medium acidity and the finish is medium long.

Wonderful blended flavors of sweet, dark cherries, flowers and spices. Wonderful perfume, juiciness and a very harmonious finish. Great balance and depth. It's layered, complex and very flavorful. Really nice! 1/7/12

A subtle and delicate wine with subtle chocolate, berry and spices on the nose and palate. Lovely length and balance. 38% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 26% Syrah, and 6% Counoise. Drink now or hold.
