Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2011 Côtes de Tablas Blanc features a serious nose, minty with stone fruits and honey lurking underneath. The mouth is broad and rich, peaches and cream, but dry, with a very long finish with a hint of tannin, cream, and rocks, nicely saline at the end.

Pair with Mussels Mariniere, Scallops, Ceviche, Light Fish or a Green Salas with Avocado and Citrus Dressing.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale yellow. Leesy peach and pear aromas are complemented by white flowers and lemon zest. Supple citrus and pit fruit flavors show very good depth and back-end lift, picking up dusty minerality with air. Finishes clean and tight, with nervy cut and very good floral persistence."
91 Points

"An aromatic, refreshing and sleek wine, featuring pretty jasmine and toasted hazelnut notes. The apricot, melon, citrus and peach flavors follow, all combining harmoniously on the juicy finish. Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Roussanne. Drink now through 2018."

Learn About Tablas Creek Map ItMap It

The Perrins of Chateau de Beaucastel and Robert Haas, their importer since 1970, founded Tablas Creek Vineyard in 1990. They chose their 1600-foot elevation site in West Paso Robles' Las Tablas because of its chalky clay soils and its climate similar to the southern Rhone Valley. They imported selected French cuttings of Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah and Counoise and multiplied, grafted and planted their own vines, which they farm organically. This blended wine, in the image of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, is 100% estate-grown and bottled.
