The Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas Blanc is a blend of four white Rhône varietals: Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne. The wine incorporates fruit from six top Rhone vineyards in Paso Robles, each vineyard selected for its quality. Like many white wines from the Southern Rhône, it is based on the crisp acids and rich mouthfeel of Grenache Blanc, with Viognier added for floral, tropical aromatics, and small additions of Roussanne and Marsanne for structure.

The 2014 Patelin de Tablas Blanc leaps out of the glass with aromas of pineapple, ginger, quince, and pink grapefruit, with a briny mineral note emerging with air. In the mouth it's luscious with fresh pineapple, nectarine, honeycomb and clove oil flavors, kept refreshing by vibrant acids. The finish is long, rich and dry, with lingering flavors of watermelon rind, sea spray and lemon zest. Drink now and for the next 2-3 years.

The 2014 vintage was our third consecutive drought year and a warm spring saw our earliest-ever beginning to the growing season. The summer was warm but without serious heat spikes, and our coolest August in a decade slowed ripening at a critical period. When it warmed back up in September, the fruit tumbled in, and we finished in mid-October, about two weeks earlier than normal. The result was a vintage with excellent concentration balanced by good freshness, which should be vibrant and powerful young, but with the balance to age.
All varietals for the Patelin de Tablas Blanc were whole cluster pressed, and fermented in stainless steel to emphasize the clean crisp flavors and preserve the aromatics. Only native yeasts were used. After fermentation, the wines were racked and blended, and bottled in May 2015.
