2002 Wines

The 2002 vintage began with a warm, dry winter with the lowest rainfall in five years. Spring remained dry and cool, while June, July and August were very warm. Moderate temperatures returned in September and weather stayed ideal well into November. Cool nights prolonged the hangtime of the grapes and produced wines that were concentrated, rich, and ripe, but with good acidity to balance the richness. Roussanne-based whites have proven to age remarkably well, and the powerful tannins on 2002’s reds have mellowed into wines with remarkable complexity and years of development left ahead of them.

A Briny Pairing, No Ocean Required: Roasted Branzino and Picpoul Blanc

May 16, 2016
By: Suphada Rom
The repertoire of wines that I work with at Tablas Creek are French-centric: Rhone, with a California inflection. This means that I'm surrounded by complex blends. Still, we've tried to bring to light some of our lesser known varieties, to help people understand what makes them appealing. In fact, one of my favorite things about our tasting room experience is sharing some of the more obscure and rare bottlings of solo bottlings of things normally found on their own. Like Counoise. Or, when I have someone really interested in our white wines, Picpoul Blanc.  Read More »
