Tablas Creek Esprit de Tablas Rouge 2014

$101.00 inc. GST

The 2014 Esprit de Tablas has a powerfully expressive, nose with deep aromas of licorice and cherry liqueur given lift by spicy notes of pink peppercorn and mint. The mouth is luscious but still very young, with flavors of chocolate-covered cherries, a briny sea spray note, and serious tannins. The finish shows more baker’s chocolate and cherry cola notes, as well as a smoky berry element. We recommend that you drink either between 2017 and 2019 or 2022-2040.


40% Mourvèdre 35% Grenache 20% Syrah 5% Counoise • Vines imported from the Beaucastel estate. • Grown on limestone soils in the hilly Adelaida District of west Paso Robles, chosen for its similarity to Châteauneuf-du-Pape. • Organically farmed vineyard. • Estate grown and bottled. • Fermented in classic style using native yeasts. Combines the richness, meatiness and ageability of Mourvèdre with the mineral and structure of Syrah, the generous fruit of Grenache, and the fresh spiciness of Counoise.
