Winemaker's Notes:

The Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas Rose is a rosé blend in the tradition of Provence, produced from three red Rhône varietals: Grenache, Mourvèdre and Counoise. The wine incorporates fruit from seven top Rhone vineyards in Paso Robles, each vineyard selected for its quality. Like most rosé wines from the Rhone Valley, it is based on the bright strawberrry fruit and fresh acidity of Grenache, with additions of darker fruit, structure and spice from Mourvèdre and Counoise.

Pair with salmon, sushi, anchovies, sausages, fried chicken, Mediterranean tapas.

75% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 5% Counoise

About Tablas Creek Vineyard:

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.
