The nose is vibrant and spicy with aromas of bramble fruit, plum and allspice. On the palate Mourvèdre's opulent fruit profile mingles with more earthy notes of dried herbs and liquorice. The long finish is structured by chalky tannins and a fine bead of acidity. This is a wine that will reward patient cellaring.
Tablas Creek was established in 1987 by two leading wine families: the Perrin family, founders of Château de Beaucastel and the Haas family, owners of the US importer Vineyard Brands. After many years travelling the States together to promote the Perrin wines they agreed that California’s Mediterranean climate was ideally suited to the Rhône’s native grape varieties. In 1989, they purchased a 50-hectare parcel in west Paso Robles. The team imported cuttings from the Beaucastel estate and established their own nursery, with grafting facilities, to propagate their cuttings which were used to replant their vineyards. The estate has been certified organic since 2003 and biodynamic since 2017. Reinforcing the estate’s commitment to sustainability, Tablas Creek became the first winery to attain Regenerative Organic Certification in 2020. Their intention is to ensure the purest vineyard and vintage expression.
