We were thrilled to receive such good reviews and comments from Antonio Galloni’s Vinous this summer. Josh Raynolds, writing in their September 2016 issue, gave all 28 wines he reviewed 90+ ratings, including 2014 Esprit Blanc (93 points; "deftly combines power and finesse"), 2013 Panoplie (95 points; "complex, explosive"), 2014 Patelin de Tablas (91 points; "there's fabulous value here") and 2014 En Gobelet (93 points; "brilliant...impressively long").
We were honored to learn that The Daily Meal placed Tablas Creek at #2 on its list of 101 Best Wineries in America for 2016 among an impressive collection of iconic producers. They said "sustainable agriculture practices and traditional winemaking have established them as a role model for Rhône varietals [in California] and the wines are consistently excellent."
This January, we learned that the members of the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance voted Tablas Creek Partner & General Manager Jason Haas the 2015 Paso Robles Wine Industry Person of the Year for his "outstanding contributions toward the success of the Paso Robles wine industry". His father, Tablas Creek founder Robert Haas, wrote an appreciation on our blog.
Last April, The Rhone Rangers recognized Robert Haas with the Rhone Rangers Lifetime Achievement Award, given for services to the American Rhone movement. It's just the second-ever lifetime achievement award that the organization has given out. Details » Video tribute from other California icons »

At this horizontal tasting (horizontal referring to tasting several wines from a single estate made in a single year, as opposed to vertical, which would imply a tasting of the same wine across several vintages) you can join us as we look back at 2007 with the perspective of ten years’ time. The cost is $45 for wine club members and $60 for guests and non-members. This event is sure to fill up early. To reserve, email email@example.com or call 805.237.1231 x36.

In 2014 we began the tradition of looking back each year at the vintage from ten years before. Part of this is simple interest in seeing how a wide range of our wines -- many of which we don't taste regularly -- have evolved, but we also have a specific purpose: choosing ten or so of the most compelling and interesting wines from this vintage to show at the public retrospective tasting we hold each year (this year's is February 11th). Ten years is enough time that the wines have become something different and started to pick up some secondary and tertiary flavors, but not so long that most wines are at the end of their drink windows. And, in fact, most of the 2007 reds are just entering their mature peak. Read More »
