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.
I really enjoyed this--even more so then last year. True gold in color. Reticent aromas of mineral. As the wine warmed and opened, flavors of pear, melon, and mineral with a touch of beeswax in the finish. Soft and round. No alcoholic aromas or sense of heat. Just terrific. Had with sea scallops with tomato-ginger-lemongrass orzo.
Fabulous melon aromas are pronounced in this very good white. These aromas are echoed in the palate, along with some floral and citrus notes. Heavy, rich mouthfeel.
