2014 TABLAS CREEK "ESPRIT DE TABLAS" PASO ROBLES RHONE BLEND
93 points Vinous Media: "Opaque ruby. Deep, smoke-accented aromas of red and blue fruits, candied flowers and cracked pepper convey a slow-building mineral quality. At once rich and energetic, offering intense black raspberry and boysenberry compote flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Finishes spicy and impressively long, with velvety tannins arriving late and adding gentle grip." (JR, 09/2016)
93 points and *Cellar Selection* Wine Enthusiast: "Dried red cherries, dark strawberry, mulberry, light baking spice and freshly cracked pepper show on the nose of this balanced bottling of 40% Mourvèdre, 28% Syrah, 22% Grenache and 10% Counoise. The sip starts with a dusty character, and then lovely flavors of light purple fruit, lavender powder and intriguing florality ensue. It drinks great now, but will age marvelously. Enjoy from 2018-2033." (MK, 09/2016)
91+ points Wine Advocate: "The backbone of the estate is their Esprit de Tablas, and the 2013 Esprit de Tablas is a fresh, focused, ruby colored effort that offers plenty of black cherry, blackberry, ground herbs and pepper in a medium-bodied, yet big boned, firm and nicely concentrated package. Made from 40% Mourvedre, 28% Syrah, 22% Grenache and 10% Counoise, aged in foudre, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age to fill out, and will drink well over the following decade." (JD, 08/2016)
