- Show All (84)
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.
The nose was like a big basket of ripe berries with crème fraiche, tobacco box and spice. However, on the palate, it fell short of expectations with black currant and bell pepper on a light-to-medium frame with a fresh, yet long, finish. At a quarter of the price, I may have scored low nineties.
Tangy, citrusy body, with a touch of anise and a nice soft finish. Dark black/purple color. Would go well with tomato dishes since it would match the fruitiness and acidity.
Definitely needs food, but not bad after dinner by itself. Pretty decent, and good for the price. Went very well with spaghetti and a red meat sauce. Smooth and dry. Decent, and not bad, aside from that, not a lot to distinguish it.
A very good value. Slightly fruity with soft tannins.
Ruby red color with purple hues. Intense fresh fruit aromas with pleasant floral hints. Well-structured, generous, soft and harmonious. Sweet tannin and lingering fruit in the finish.
A nice simple merlot semi-smooth has a bit of an acidic after taste.
It takes me back to Italia... a good wine and a great value.
External Reviews for Tablas Creek Rose Mouvedre & Blends Ca-Paso Robles
Tignanello 2007 is a wine which presents itself with a great impact. To the nose this wine opens with a pleasant concentration of aromas ranging from ripe red fruit to spiciness; with hints of vanilla and toasty notes which compose a bouquet with great persistence and elegance. It is a wine of unquestionable personality, with typical characteristics which deeply bond the wine with the land where it was born, exalting and rewarding this maximum expression of the wonderfully ripened sangiovese, so particularly optimal in this harvest. Best after 2012.
The 2006 Tignanello is especially opulent in this vintage. Masses of dark red fruit, scorched earth and sweet oak emerge as this richly-textured Tignanello flows from the glass. The wine possesses superb density; all it needs is another few years to come together. Today it is remarkably vibrant and primary. Tignanello is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2014ndash;2024.
You canandrsquo;t help but love this wine. The richness, density and intensity are all outstanding and Tignanello is extraordinary in terms of aromas and flavors. The traditional formula for this groundbreaking super Tuscan was Sangiovese with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage sees 5% Cabernet Franc for additional texture and longevity.
Tignanello hit spot-on in rsquo;98, the ripeness of its Sangiovese made supple, concentrated and plush with ripe Cabernet, while it holds to the brightness of the Tuscan grape. The power of the Cabernet shows up in the first scents of cocoa and dark berries, in the completely mouth-filling flavor, while the Sangiovese keeps it mouthwatering. Therersquo;s super extract without excess weight, a sweet kiss of tannic intensity to end the wine in herbal, earthy black. Probably around ten years from the vintage, this needs the time to fully express its depth of flavor.
Antinorirsquo;s 2007 Tignanello is wonderfully ripe and seductive in its dark cherries, flowers, spices, tobacco, sage, cedar, mint and minerals. This is as opulent a Tignanello as I have ever tasted but there is just enough acidity and structure from the Sangiovese to keep things from going over the top. The winersquo;s richness and warmth are such that in a blind tasting I mistook the 2007 Tignanello for a wine from Maremma! The dense, muscular fruit follows through to an impeccable finish with no hard edges and impossibly fine, silky tannins. Simply put, the 2007 is a magnificent Tignanello. The 2007 Tignanello is 80% Sangiovese aged in 300-liter French oak barrels (1/3 new), 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, both aged in 100% new 225-liter French oak barriques. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2027.
Displays sweet plum and berry aromas and flavors, with hints of toasty oak and cappuccino. Full-bodied, yet reserved and fine. Turns chewy and juicy. Best after 2012.
Antinori's signature blend of sangiovese with cabernet sauvignon is clearly touched by the vintage character of 2003, both superripe and a little green. The earthiness ties it to Tuscany, the smoky red tomato flavors suited to osso buco or other braised meats.
