The Tablas Creek Vineyard 2022 Cinsaut is our third varietal bottling of this rare Chateauneuf-du-Pape grape, propagated from budwood cuttings from the Château de Beaucastel estate. Cinsaut is the fourth-most-planted grape in Chateauneuf du Pape, after Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. On its own it is valued for its juicy liveliness, its red fruit, its relatively gentle tannins, and its low alcohol.

Tasting Notes

A nose of fruitcake, new leather and olallieberry, plush and spicy. The mouth is more lifted than the nose suggests, with flavors of elderberry and red plum, a sprinkling of dusty tannins, and a spicy blueberry note on the finish.

Production Notes

We expect, in the long term, to use Cinsaut in many of our red and rose blends. But it is also capable of making a delicious varietal wine, showcasing its lively fruit, spice and acidity. With just two barrels to work within this, our first vintage, we made the decision to bottle it on its own.

The 2022 vintage was our third year of drought, but because the rain that we received came early, the vines showed good health though with cluster counts down by about 15%. A cool first half of the summer was followed by our hottest-ever August and September, producing an early start and an even earlier finish to harvest. The vintage's extremely low yields produced concentrated flavors, noteworthy texture, and intense fruit.

Our Cinsaut grapes were grown on our Regenerative Organic Certified™ and biodynamic estate vineyard.

The barrels were racked and blended in June 2023, then aged in neutral oak before being bottled under screwcap in February 2024.
