Overview

The Tablas Creek Vineyard 2011 Esprit de Tablas* is a blend of four estate-grown varietals, propagated from budwood cuttings from the Château de Beaucastel estate. The wine is based on the dark red fruit, earth, spice and mid-palate richness of Mourvèdre, with additions of Grenache for forward fruit, approachability and lushness, Syrah for mineral, aromatics, and back-palate tannins, and Counoise for brambly spice and acidity.

Tablas Creek is a pioneer of California's Rhone movement. Founded in 1989, it is the culmination of a friendship between two of the international wine community;s leading families dating back to 1967: the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel and the Haas family of Vineyard Brands.

After a 4 year search, the perners chose Paso Robles, California, for its many similarities tot he southern Rhone, and began the lengthy process of importing vine cuttings, building a grapevine nursery and creating an estate vineyard from scratch.

Winery Tasting Notes

The nose shows exuberant freshness, with Mourvedre's signature currant, black tea and roasted meat aromas, given lift by a tangy, winey note showing rosemary and mineral. The mouth is long, fine and balanced, lusher than the nose suggests, with flavors of licorice, spice, meat drippings and clove, mid-weight now (relatively soon after bottling) but with every expectation of deepening over coming months. We recommend that you hold the 2011 Esprit for a few months, then drink either between 2014 and 2016 or 2020-2040.
