#37 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
The 2009 Côtes de Tablas shows a rich, minty nose with dark chocolate, cherry, leather, licorice and crushed rock. The mouth explodes with dark cherry, with nice chalky Grenache tannins giving firmness. The very long finish lingers with flavors of licorice, spice and cherry liqueur. Our most concentrated Côtes de Tablas ever; it should drink well young but also cellar happily for a decade.
Pairs well with grilled steaks, pasta with meat sauces, rich beef stews, spicy sausages.
Blend: 43% Grenache, 24% Syrah, 18% Counoise, 15% Mourvèdre
Charmingly fruity, supple and fun to drink, exhibiting ripe plum, black cherry and wild berry fruit that's smooth and layered, with a long, fruity finish. Grenache, Syrah, Counoise and Mourvedre. Drink now through 2017. 1,050 cases made.
Vivid ruby-red. Lively red fruits on the nose, with strong mineral and floral qualities contributing vivacity. Fresh and silky, with spice-accented bitter cherry and raspberry flavors lifted by tangy acidity. The sweet, precise feature shows repeating raspberry and cherry notes.
