  • 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 2010 Patelin de Tablas Blanc is a blend in the style of French Cotes du Rhone whites, with flavors of lemon and mineral, a hint of tropicality from the Viognier, and a long finish with surprising richness.

Blend: 50% Grenache Blanc, 33% Viognier, 10% Roussanne, 7% Marsanne

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Patelin de Tablas Blanc (50% Grenache Blanc, 33% Viognier, 10% Roussanne, 7% Marsanne) shows the richness of Grenache Blanc in its white peaches, flowers and jasmine. It is a beautifully delineated white, as well as a terrific value. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015."
89 Points

"Bright yellow. Fresh lemon and pear aromas are complemented by notes of green almond and white pepper. Focused and racy, offering spicy citrus pith and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of bitter quinine. Finishes on a dry, stony note, with very good tangy length. This is a really impressive freshman effort. "

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.
