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: 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.”

Jancis Robinson Paso Robles Reviews 2023 Paso Robles for Wine Lovers

We were thrilled with Samantha Cole-Johnson's three-part review of Paso Robles on Her insightful articles included favorable reviews for Tablas Creek wines and the region as a whole. One of our highlights was her tasting note on our 2021 Esprit de Tablas:

Tasted blind. Medium ruby in colour. Dried herbs, red cherries and bitter chocolate on the nose. Bright and fresh on the palate with high acidity and superfine lightweight tannin. Lingering finish. In a flight of heavier-weight reds this goes down very easily – so lovely.
