Tablas Creek Vineyard Paso Robles 2014 Côtes de Tablas (Rhône-styled) Red Wine





Tablas Creek Vineyard Paso Robles 2014 Côtes de Tablas (Rhône-styled) Red Wine, $25.49-$29.99, 92 points, poured a deep ruby red grading widely maroon up to the broad clear wine ring and glass wall of sticky sheeting.
Aromas were fragrantly floral, almost perfumed with boysenberry jam, pomegranate juice, and a hint of cinnamon.
Medium to medium-plus body, good acidity, and a comfortably firm underlayment of tannin carried a bounty of flavors which mirrored the aromas with hints of plum and a tasty nuttiness.
Finished long on the 15% alcohol inspirited spiciness and a whisper of mint.
Varietals were 44% Grenache, 36% Syrah, 12% Counoise, and 8% Mourvèdre.
This red wine was lively and yummy; paired perfectly with our loaded pizza.

  1. I think Tablas Creek generally do a great job with all their Rhone varietal wines.
