2018 Tablas Creek 'Esprit de Tablas' Rouge Paso Robles

$59.95

A deep brooding Mourvèdre nose of loamy redcurrant and roasted meats, new leather and black plum. The mouth shows spicy licorice and nutmeg lift over baked plums and Mourvèdre's signature plum skin tannin maintaining balance with the wine's mouth-coating texture. The long, richly tannic finish, with lingering flavors of wood smoke, roasted meat, and crushed rock, promises more rewards to come with cellar aging. The winery recommends that you drink either between now and 2023 or wait until 2026 and then any time over the subsequent two decades.

Deep, shimmering ruby. Intensely perfumed raspberry, boysenberry, baking spice and lavender scents show outstanding
clarity and mineral lift. Stains the palate with lively red/blue fruit, spice-cake and floral pastille flavors that steadily deepen
through the midpalate, with no loss of energy. Clings with noteworthy tenacity on an impressively long, energetic finish
that features harmonious tannins and resonating floral and mineral notes.
