Esprit de Tablas Vertical Tasting on OwenBargreen.com
On a recent visit to Tablas Creek, we shared a mini-vertical tasting of our Esprit de Beaucastel and Esprit de Tablas red with reviewer Owen Bargreen. This vertical tasting spanned six bottles over 20 years, starting with our first-ever 2000 and finishing with the 2020. In a recent report, Owen had this to say about the experience:
Originally named ‘Esprit de Beaucastel’ for their partnership with Chateau de Beaucastel, the name was switched more than a decade ago to ‘Esprit de Tablas’ reflecting that this is a tour de force, stand alone wine from Paso Robles. The ‘Esprit’ has become one of the quintessential California Rhone-inspired wines — and wine that consistently over-delivers for the price and deftly captures the art of blending almost unlike any other red wine in its state.
