Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Côtes de Tablas Blanc has an intense nose of peach pit, wet rocks, white tea and tarragon. The mouth is really nicely balanced, as its initial brightness and flavors of nectarine, preserved lemon, and mineral turn richer on the mid-palate, with sweet spices coming out. The finish brightens up again with notes of pink grapefruit and lemon verbena.

Pair with mussels marinière, green salads with avocado and citrus dressing, scallops, ceviche, light fish (halibut, sole) with tropical salsa.

Blend: 43% Viognier, 40% Grenache Blanc, 14% Marsanne, 3% Roussanne

Wine Enthusiast
This blend of 43% Viognier, 40% Grenache Blanc, 14% Marsanne and 3% Roussanne shows a fascinating mineral tone, offering a grippy and yet still expressive wine. Aromas of Key lime and plaster of Paris lead into a dynamic palate of pink grapefruit pith, peach blossom and Rainier cherry, all set against a chalky backbone. Editors’ Choice.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Blended of 43% Viognier, 40% Grenache Blanc, 14% Marsanne and 3% Roussanne, the 2016 Cote de Tablas Blanc has an alluring nose of peach cobbler, marzipan and white pepper with a savory/mineral undercurrent of rising dough and crushed stones. Medium-bodied with great poise in the mouth, the palate is wonderfully minerally with a lively line delivering a long, refreshing finish.
JD 91
Jeb Dunnuck
A blend of 43% Viognier, 40% Grenache Blanc, 14% Marsanne and the rest Roussanne, the 2016 Cotes de Tablas Blanc is a straight up delicious, quaffable white that's ideal for drinking over the coming year or two. Pear, white flowers, hints of minerality and citrus all emerge from this medium-bodied, beautifully textured, yet lively and refreshing white.

Tablas Creek Vineyard Tablas Creek Winery Winery Image

Tablas Creek is a pioneer of California’s Rhone movement. Founded in 1989, it is the culmination of a friendship between two of the international wine community’s leading families dating back to 1967: the Perrin family of Chateau de Beaucastel and the Haas family of Vineyard Brands. After a four-year search, the partners chose Paso Robles, California for its many similarities to the Southern Rhone and began the lengthy process of importing vine cuttings, building a grapevine nursery, and creating an estate vineyard from the ground up. Today, the vineyards at Tablas Creek are proudly Biodynamic® and organic certified by Demeter USA.

Full-bodied and flavorful, white Rhône blends originate from France’s Rhône Valley. Today these blends are also becoming popular in other regions. Typically some combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier form the basis of a white Rhône blend with varying degrees of flexibility depending on the exact appellation. Somm Secret—In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are common but the south retains more variety. Marsanne, Roussanne as well as Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul and Ugni Blanc are typical.
