2005 Horizontal Tasting

Feb 28th, 2015 - 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Last year, we began what we hope will be an annual tradition of looking back a decade later at how a broad range of wines have developed.  This year, we turn our attention on the 2005 vintage, which was an unusual combination of wet winter (our first after three years of drought), warm summer, and exceptionally long growing season.  It produced wines with substantial tannins and lots of fruit: a big, personality-filled vintage which has proven to age in a fascinating way.  At this horizontal tasting (horizontal referring to tasting several wines from a single estate made in a single year, vs. vertical, which would imply a tasting of the same wine across several vintages) we'll offer the opportunity to join Tablas Creek's winemaking team to look back at 2005 with the perspective of ten years' time.  We'll choose the specific wines in a tasting early in 2015, but to get a sense of what we might find, read our blog piece with notes from last year's tasting of every wine we made in 2004.

$45 for wine club members and $60 for guests and non-members (2 guest maximum).  This event is sure to fill up early.   To reserve, email events@tablascreek.com or call 805.237.1231 x30.

Rhone River Cruise with Tablas Creek

Aug 2nd-9th, 2015

We’re excited to offer a return to the Mediterranean in the summer of 2015. Founders Robert and Barbara Haas will join Winemaker Neil Collins to lead the trip, this time on an intimate river cruise up the Rhone Valley from Avignon to Lyon aboard Uniworld Boutique River Cruises’ new ship, the SS Catherine. The daily shore tours include a behind-the-scenes visit to Chateau de Beaucastel culminating in a gourmet lunch prepared by Beaucastel’s Michelin-starred chef Laurent Deconick. We have exclusive booking rights to this ship until July 2014, and I hope we can have a 100% Tablas Creek group.  Cabins start at $4234 per person.  For all the details, and to book, visit our travel partners' Web site at foodandwinetrails.com/tablascreek2015 or call Food & Wine Trails at (800) 367-5348. We hope that you will join us!

Assessing the Impacts of Last Week's Rain

December 14, 2014
We're in a peaceful interlude between two significant storms. The sun may be thin and wintery, but it's (mostly) out. The rain that fell on Thursday and Friday is soaking in...I took advantage of this break to get out into the vineyard and take some photos, and was struck by just how much greener it was even than early in the week.  Read More »
