$29.95
WE93

For the first time, this ‘Patelin’ beings Terret Noir to the table, an ancient varietal from the Languedoc that has been dropping off the map even in France. It’s exciting to see the Tablas Creek plantings begin to bear fruit, so to speak. Syrah builds the core with dark fruit, mineral and spice, Grenache adds brightness and fresh acidity, and Mourvedre handles the structure. The addition of Counoise and Terret Noir bring an unexpected level of intriguing complexity that makes this 92-Point blend an absolute must-try.
