    Winemaker's Notes:

    It is time. After a decade of Esprit de Beaucastel, our flagship wines will bear a new name. Please welcome Esprit de Tablas, to debut this fall with the release of the 2011 vintage.

    The nose shows exuberant freshness, with Mourvedre's signature currant, black tea and roasted meat aromas, given lift by a tangy, winey note showing rosemary and mineral. The mouth is long, fine and balanced, lusher than the nose suggests, with flavors of licorice, spice, meat drippings and clove, mid-weight now (relatively soon after bottling) but with every expectation of deepening over coming months.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright ruby. An assertively perfumed bouquet evokes black raspberry, blood orange and peppery spices, with suave floral pastille nuances. Spicy and precise on the palate, offering lively dark fruit and floral pastille flavors underscored by hints of white pepper and allspice. Finishes long and gently tannic, with powerful notes of spicecake and dark fruit preserves.
