Winemaker's Notes

The Tablas Creek Vineyard Côtes de Tablas is a blend of four estate-grown Rhône varietals: Grenache, Syrah, Counoise and Mourvedre. Like most wines of the Southern Rhône, it is a blend of varietals, featuring the fruitiness of Grenache balanced by the spice and structure of Syrah, with meaty, earthy notes from Mourvedre and Counoise. The 2004 Côtes de Tablas is Tablas Creek's fifth release of its Côtes de Tablas red blend, made in the style of a full-throttle Côtes du Rhone.

The 2004 Côtes de Tablas has a juicy, berry nose of currants, raspberries, licorice and spice. The mouth is full of rich, sweet Grenache fruit showing good acidity and a long finish laced with licorice.

Food pairings: Grilled steaks, pastas with meat sauces, rich beef stews, spicy sausages.

"The medium-bodied 2004 Côtes de Tablas exhibits lovely peppery, berry fruit, roasted herb, and gamy scents. It is a top-notch example of a California version of a Côtes du Rhône." 89 Points

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.
