We were excited to see our newest reviews from Jeb Dunnuck in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, which called us "a reference point for Paso Robles" and included thirty different wines with 90+ point ratings. Some highlights:
We are pleased to announce the national release of the 2012 Patelin de Tablas Blanc. This is our third vintage of the Patelin Blanc, which incorporates fruit from eight top Rhone vineyards in Paso Robles (including Tablas Creek) and four white Rhône grapes, principally Grenache Blanc for zesty citrus and mineral, and Viognier for lush stone fruit and floral notes. It recently received an 89-91 point rating in the Wine Advocate, and the comments:
"Pretty and elegant, with plenty of white peach, citrus rind and spice, this rounded, supple white has a hard-to-resist texture and while fresh and clean enough to drink nicely on its own, should also be versatile on the dinner table."
