Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 58% Mourvèdre, 32% Grenache and10% Counoise. The 2008 Rosé is vibrant and fully dry, rich with spice and fruit. It has aromatics of sage, plum and watermelon, flavors of strawberries and cherries, fresh acidity and a lingering finish. Pair it with Mediterranean cuisine, Spanish tapas, preparations with garlic and olive oil... or just enjoy it outside on a sunny day.

Pair with salmon, sushi, anchovies, sausages, roast chicken and Mediterranean tapas.

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.
