    Winemaker's Notes:

    Like most wines of the Southern Rhône, the Tablas Creek Vineyard Côtes de Tablas is a blend of varietals, featuring the fruitiness of Grenache balanced by the spice and structure of Syrah, with meaty, earthy notes from Mourvedre and Counoise.

    The 2005 Côtes de Tablas has an intensely Grenache nose of rare steak, pepper and blueberry. It is juicy and rich in the mouth, with ripe tannins and a finish laced with licorice.

    Food pairings: Grilled steaks, pastas with meat sauces, rich beef stews, spicy sausages.

    "There are 3,900 cases of this delicious, deep ruby/purple-hued offering. Aromas of smoke, roasted herbs, meat juices, black currants and cherries are followed by a medium to full-bodied wine displaying beautiful purity, fruit, and depth. Drink it over the next 5-6 years." 91 Points

    "Deep ruby. Spicy red berries and cherry on the nose, with musky underbrush and baking spices adding complexity; smells like a really good southern Rhône wine. Fresh red fruit flavors are enlivened by zesty mineral and candied floral qualities. Finishes sweet but with a pleasing bitter cherry bite. The tannins here are silky and harmonious, never intruding on the suave fruit." 90 Points
