Rainbow over Tablas Creek

Decanter reports on rain in California wine country

Decanter's US Editor Clive Pursehouse speaks to our Jason Haas as a part of his report on the impact of the recent rains on California's wine country, and included photos taken during and after the rain by Director of Winemaking Neil Collins. From Jason's report:

‘The rains here were nothing but good news,’ Haas said. ‘We got about 15cm spread over a week, and that pushes us up to about 45cm for the year. That’s about 125% of normal for this date. It’s late enough in the winter season that the cover crops are very well established, and there was no erosion or any negative impacts whatsoever.’

Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2023

2021 Esprit de Tablas Blanc: #51 on Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 of 2023

We were excited to learn that our 2021 Esprit de Tablas Blanc was named #51 on Wine Enthusiast's "Top 100 wines of 2023"! This year, Wine Enthusiast editors blind-tasted more than 23,000 bottles and select their Top 100. Their criteria? These were "not simply the highest scoring bottles, nor are they the most expensive—these are wines that opened our reviewers’ eyes and stimulated their imaginations."

Of the 2021 Esprit Blanc, they say:

As the importer of so many Rhône varieties, it's no surprise that Tablas Creek manages blends like few other domestic producers. This combination of 70% Roussanne, 17% Picpoul Blanc, 10% Grenache, 2% Bourboulenc and 1% Clairette Blanche shows clean nectarine and apricot aromas on the nose, with a light nuttiness. The palate's chalky texture offers creamy flavors of cashew milk and apple blossoms.

Wine Enthusiast: The Best Wineries (and More) to Visit in Paso Robles Right Now

We are proud to make Matt Kettman's list of "Best Wineries to Visit" in Paso Robles. From Matt's piece:

For an educational experience, head through the oak-lined twists of Adelaida Road to Tablas Creek Vineyard. Founded in the 1990s by wine importer Robert Haas, who worked with the Perrin family of Chateau Beaucastel to identify the best place for Rhône varieties in California, Tablas is “the epitome of Paso,” says Addamo. “You go to that tasting room to learn something.”
