Wine Enthusiast Cellar Selections

2017 Esprit de Tablas Blanc is a Wine Enthusiast "Top 100 Cellar Selection" for 2020

We are proud to share that last month we learned our 2017 Esprit de Tablas Blanc was named to Wine Enthusiast Magazine's "Top 100 Cellar Selections" list for 2020. From the review of the wine:

Baked pear, sea salt, yellow peach and daffodil aromas arise on the nose of this ageworthy blend of 68% Roussanne, 17% Grenache Blanc, 7% Picpoul Blanc, 4% Clairette Blanche and 4% Picardan. There's a good sizzle of acidity to the sip, where botanical flavors meet with zesty lemon-lime elements. Drink through 2028.

You can browse the full list, which the magazine calls its "ultimate roster of wines that display staying power," here.

Bev X Fall 2020 Reviews Photo

BevX.Com: "The Great Fall 2020 Release from Tablas Creek"

We recently received one of the best sets of reviews we've ever gotten from Sean Ludford's BevX.com. From his introduction:

Readers at BevX know that we have a great fondness for the wines made at Tablas Creek in Paso Robles, California.

We have reviewed more than 50 of their wines over the past five years. In late September we received seven wines from their fall 2020 release.

The wines scored incredibly well ranging from 94 to 97 points. Every one was a featured review and one was a Beverage of the Week.

We present the fall releases below, each with links to their respective featured review. Enjoy and happy drinking.

Owen Bargreen: "I adored the new wines across the board."

We were excited to find six of our newest releases rated over 90 points by Owen Bargreen.

"I adored the new wines across the board. Look to the 2019 Tablas Creek ‘Patelin de Tablas’ White Wine (OB, 90) which is a killer value and shows beautifully especially if you catch a warm day. I was blown away with its bigger sister, the 2018 Tablas Creek ‘Espirit Blanc de Tablas’ White Wine (OB, 95) which is dense and has a killer mouthfeel and seriously good aromatic and flavor range. A show-stopping wine, the 2018 Tablas Creek ‘Espirit de Tablas’ Red Wine (OB, 96) is a Mourvedre dominant wine akin to Chateau de Beaucastel. This deep and inky wine really needs either a few years of bottle age or some time in the decanter but once aroused it unveils thrilling range and mouthfeel, with a vibrant degree of tension and rich viscosity that gives this serious aging potential. Here are the compelling new wines by Tablas Creek."

Tablas Creek in the Purely Domestic Wine Report (PDWR): Seventeen Wines 90+ (Nine 93+)

We were excited to read Doug Wilder's newest issue of the Purely Domestic Wine Report (PDWR) in which he reviewed the wines of the Central Coast. If you're unfamiliar with the publication, Doug combines wine reviews with portrait-style photographs of each winemaker or proprietor whose wines he features. The result is a visual presentation unlike any other wine journal out there.

New Times: As the first Regenerative Organic Certified winery, Tablas Creek is committed to farming like the world depends on it

In this great article in our local New Times SLO, writer Camillia Lanham shares the story of our first-in-the-world Regenerative Organic Certification. From her conclusion:

"It starts really with our belief that farming this way makes better grapes and better wine," Haas said, adding that the vineyard is a small piece of a broader community. "I hope we're not the only [winery with the certification] for long. This is one of those things where the more people who do it, the better it is for all of us."
