    Winemaker's Notes:

    Number 40 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

    The Tablas Creek Vineyard Côtes de Tablas Blanc is a blend of four estate-grown white Rhône varietals: Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, and Grenache Blanc. The wine, like most wines of the Southern Rhône, is a blend of varietals, featuring the aromatics and fruit of the Viognier, the flavors and clean minerality of the Marsanne and Roussanne, and the crisp acids and rich mouthfeel of the Grenache Blanc.

    It features spicy aromas of herbs, stone fruits and minerals are followed in the mouth by apricot flavors, rich texture, bright acidity, and a long, clean peachy finish.

    Food pairings: mussels Mariniere, green salads with avocado and citrus dressing, scallops, ceviche, light fish (halibut, sole) with tropical salsa

    "A barrel sample of the 2005 Cote de Tablas blanc (42% Viognier, 33% Roussanne, 19% Marsanne, and 6% Grenache Blanc) offers lovely notes of honeysuckle, orange peel, and other tropical fruits in its medium to full-bodied, stylish personality." Rating: 90-92

    "A sumptuous white, a combination of mouthwatering richness with remarkable delicate and detailed aromas an flavors" 94 Points
    -Wines & Spirits

    "Yellow-gold. Fresh, floral aromas suggest dried pear, peach skin and white pepper. Round and oily, with full-bodied but energetic pit fruit flavors and a brisk, peppery finish. This is made to drink soon after release, according to general manager Jason Haas." 88 Points

    Enjoyed this on a lovely afternoon at Tanglewood up in the Berkshires. Excellent taste, even in a semi-chilled state. Perfect with food, and a good buy for the price.

    Varietal blend that is a drinkable wine with a bouquet that hints of apple with a strong mineral finish. Went well with Brie and Asiago. Would recommend for pork tenderloin dish with a cider reduction.
