SKU #1415411 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Very light pink with a hint of yellow in the glass, this blend of 76% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and 4% Counoise from nine vineyards offers aromas of chalky lemon and nectarine on the delicate nose. The texture is grippy with chalk on the palate, offering flavors of strawberry, pluot flesh and a spritz of citrus. (MK)  (6/2019)

 Light bright orange. Ripe red berries, nectarine, orange zest and a sexy floral quality on the perfumed nose. Silky in texture and well-concentrated, offering juicy citrus and pit fruit flavors and a touch of bitter cherry that builds on the back half. Finishes very long and smooth, showing strong energy and resonating candied rose and pit fruit nectar qualities. (JR)  (8/2019)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The 2018 Patelin de Tablas Rosé is a vibrant light peach color. On the nose are spicy aromatics of nectarine, grapefruit pith, sea spray, and crushed rock. The mouth is bright with flavors of yellow raspberry and blood orange, with mouthwatering acidity giving focus to a long finish with flavors of lemon drop, briny mineral, and a little rose petal florality. Drink now and over the next year. The Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas Rosé is a rosé blend in the tradition of Provence, produced from three red Rhône varietals: Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Counoise. The wine incorporates fruit from nine top Rhône vineyards in Paso Robles, each vineyard selected for its quality. Like most rosé wines from the Rhône Valley, it is based on the bright strawberry fruit and fresh acidity of Grenache, with additions of deeper red fruit and structure from Mourvèdre and spice from Counoise."

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
