    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Côtes de Tablas Blanc is a blend in the style of French Cotes du Rhone whites, and features intense aromas of stone fruits and minerals, flavors of apricot and Provençal herbs, rich texture, moderate acidity and a long peachy finish.

    Pair with Mussels Marinière, green salads with avocado and citrus dressing, scallops, ceviche, light fish (halibut, sole) with tropical salsa.

    42% Viognier; 26% Roussanne; 21% Marsanne; 11% Grenache Blanc

    Critical Acclaim:

    Take, for example, the 2008 Cotes de Tablas blanc, a sensational blend of 42% Viognier, 26% Roussanne, 21% Marsanne, and the rest Grenache blanc. This seems to be a winner every year. From the hilly limestone soils of their vineyard, this blend seems to take on far more minerality and delineation than in many places in California. The good news is that there are 3,000 cases of this wine, which displays nice hints of quince, crushed rock, citrus, honeysuckle, white currant, and white peach. Beautiful fruit, good delineation, medium body, and lots of freshness make for a zesty, personality-filled dry white to drink over the next several years. A few wineries make 100% Grenache blanc, but Tablas Creek may produce the best.
