Notes From the Winemaker:
The Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas is a Paso Robles take on a classic Rhône blend: Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Counoise. The wine incorporates fruit from several of the top Rhône vineyards in Paso Robles, each vineyard selected for its quality. Like many red wines from the Rhône Valley, it is based on the dark fruit, mineral and spice of Syrah. To that Syrah, we incorporate the brightness and fresh acidity of Grenache, the structure and meatiness of Mourvèdre, and a small addition of Counoise for complexity.
The 2021 Patelin de Tablas has a nose of blackberries and iron, with both red and black licorice notes pointing to the interplay between redder-fruited grapes like Grenache and Mourvedre and the blacker-fruited character of Syrah. On the palate, tangy black raspberry and black cherry fruit, with additional notes of baker's chocolate and a graphite-like minerality. Mouth-filling, long, and complex. Drink over the next decade.
