Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Dianthus is cranberry in color, with an expressive nose of watermelon rind, rose petals, plum, and mineral. The mouth is rich but vibrant, with flavors of wild strawberry, pomegranate, plum and lime, and a long, rich finish that is both fresh and spicy. Pair it with Mediterranean cuisine, Spanish tapas, preparations with garlic and olive oil... or just enjoy it outside on a sunny day.

Blend: 60% Mourvedre, 25% Grenache, 15% Counoise

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
More rich and substantial, with a Tavel level of richness and depth, the 2012 Rose Dianthus (60% Mourvedre, 25% Grenache and 15% Counoise) delivers lush cherry, strawberry and wild herbs like aromas and flavors as well as a medium-bodied, full-flavored palate that stays beautifully fresh and focused. It's a superb Rose from California and while it will drink nicely for 2-3 years, it won't get beyond this summer at my house.

Tablas Creek Vineyard, Paso Robles, Central Coast, California
2012 Dianthus Rose
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.

Paso Robles

View all wine

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, fruity, and powerful wines. With 11 smaller sub-AVAs, there is quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, and Rhône varieties both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruity, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.
