Winemaker Notes

Patelin de Tablas Blanc is intensely Rhone- like on the nose, with notes of honeysuckle, spiced pear, nectarine, spearmint, and sweet spice. In the mouth, it’s lush but vibrant with peach pit, honeycrisp apple, and orange zest flavors, and a saline mid-palate. Bright acidity softens into creamy richness on the finish, leaving lingering flavors of sweet spice.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Patelin de Tablas Blanc is a blend of 48% Grenache Blanc, 22% Viognier, 13% Roussanne, 12% Marsanne and 5% Clairette Blanche. It's very much like a Chenin Blanc on the nose, with undertones of earth and bruised apples with pretty top notes of spice and dried chamomile. The medium-bodied palate offers savory fruits with bright acidity and leesy touches and a long, layered finish. 

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Rich and honeyed aromas of white peach jam, melon and citrus pith show on the nose of this blend of 48% Grenache Blanc, 22% Viognier, 13% Roussanne, 12% Marsanne and 5% Clairette Blanche. There is extreme grip to the palate, where white-flower flavors meet with Asian pear, lemon and underripe watermelon.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Blended from estate-grown and purchased fruit, this is based on grenache blanc, along with viognier, roussanne, marsanne and clairette blanche. It starts off plump, with sweet pear and peach flavors, then finishes firm and wheaty, with a pleasing bitterness. Chill it for poached chicken breast and endive.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A generous mix of juicy peach, yellow apple and ripe melon flavors, with details of Dragon Well tea, dried pineapple and lemon sherbet on the finish, showing tremendous harmony. Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne and Clairette Blanche.

Tablas Creek Vineyard, California
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.

Central Coast, California

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, powerful, fruit-driven wines. But with eleven smaller sub-AVAs, there is actually quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

Just east over the Santa Lucia Mountains from the chilly Pacific Ocean, lie the coolest in the region: Adelaida, Templeton Gap and (Paso Robles) Willow Creek Districts, as well as York Mountain AVA and Santa Margarita Ranch. These all experience more ocean fog, wind and precipitation compared to the rest of the Paso sub-appellations. The San Miguel, (Paso Robles) Estrella, (Paso Robles) Geneso, (Paso Robles) Highlands, El Pomar and Creston Districts, along with San Juan Creek, are the hotter, more western appellations of the greater Paso Robles AVA.

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, Syrah, Grenache and Rhône blends, both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruit-driven, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

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.
