Production Notes

The Tablas Creek Vineyard 2013 Esprit de Tablas Blanc is a blend of three estate-grown varietals, propagated from budwood cuttings from the Château de Beaucastel estate. Roussanne provides the core richness, minerality, and flavors of honey and spice, while Grenache Blanc adds green apple and anise flavors, a lush mouthfeel and bright acids. Picpoul Blanc completes the blend, adding a saline minerality and tropical notes.

The 2013 vintage was a classic California vintage, warm and sunny, with added intensity from the low yields produced by our second consecutive drought year. The summer was consistently warm, without the heat spikes or cold stretches that can delay ripening, and resulted in an early harvest under near-perfect conditions. The net result was a blockbuster vintage, with excellent concentration and good freshness, that should offer both early appeal and the capacity to age. We began harvesting our Grenache Blanc on September 4th, Picpoul Blanc on September 5th and our Roussanne on September 11th.  Picking continued through september, finishing with our last lot of Roussanne on October 3rd.

The grapes for our Esprit de Tablas Blanc were grown on our certified organic estate vineyard.

The fruit was whole cluster pressed, and fermented with native yeasts. The Roussanne was fermented in neutral oak of various sizes: 60-gallon oak barrels, 170-gallon demi-muids, and 1200-gallon foudres. The Grenache Blanc was fermented partially in stainless steel and also in one foudre, and the Picpoul Blanc was fermented in small neutral oak and stainless steel barrels. All the wines went through malolactic fermentation. The lots were selected and blended in April 2014, and aged in foude until their bottling in December 2014.

Tasting Notes

The 2013 Esprit de Tablas Blanc has a deep-toned nose of lacquered wood, peach pit, and butterscotch: absolutely Roussanne, richly layered, with an intriguing tarragon-like high note that emerges with air. The mouth is more tightly wound than the nose initially suggests, with a rich texture, flavors of grilled peach, clove and allspice. The finish opens back up, with nectarine, citrus blossom and a little sweet oak. Impressive now, it should also go out 15 years or more and gain additional nuttiness and complexity with time.

Production Notes

The Tablas Creek Vineyard 2012 Esprit de Tablas Blanc* is a blend of three estate-grown varietals, propagated from budwood cuttings from the Château de Beaucastel estate. Roussanne provides the core richness, minerality, and flavors of honey and spice, while Grenache Blanc adds green apple and anise flavors, a lush mouthfeel and bright acids. Picpoul Blanc completes the blend, adding a saline minerality and tropical notes.

*Curious about the new name of our signature blends?  Please read about this change on our blog post.

The 2012 vintage was a classic Paso Robles vintage, warm and sunny, but with above-average yields thanks to average winter rainfall and the frost-reduced 2011 crop. Despite the warm summer, ripening was slowed due to the healthy crop levels, and harvest at a normal time starting in early September and finishing in late October. The resulting wines showed lush, juicy fruit, balanced by good acids, and should provide enormous early appeal. Our Roussanne was harvested between September 7th and October 22nd, Grenache Blanc between September 21st and October 15th, and Picpoul between October 4th and 15th.

The grapes for our Esprit de Tablas Blanc were grown on our 120-acre certified organic estate vineyard.

The fruit was whole cluster pressed, and fermented with native yeasts. The Roussanne was fermented in a balance of stainless steel fermenters, 60-gallon oak barrels, and one 1200-gallon foudre. The Grenache Blanc was fermented partially in stainless steel and also in one foudre, and the Picpoul Blanc was fermented in small neutral oak and stainless steel barrels. All the wines went through malolactic fermentation. The lots were selected and blended in April, and bottled in September 2013.

Tasting Notes

The 2012 Esprit de Tablas Blanc has an inviting nose of preserved lemon, panna cotta, green pear, buttered toast, anise and wet rocks. The mouth is rich but dry, with flavors of butterscotch, apple pie, marmalade, candied pineapple and ginger, and gentle acids keeping things clean. The long finish is luscious and spicy with lingering flavors of peach pit, gingersnap and mineral. Absolutely delicious now, so don't feel bad about opening one soon. But it you want to age it, we expect it to go out 15 years or more and to gain nuttiness and complexity with time.

A Fabulous Dinner in the Woods of Vermont

July 28, 2016
By Barbara Haas
Being in the wine business means being in the business of giving pleasure. We want our wines to taste good and to improve the moments in which they are served. In order for us to do this, we frequently depend on the shared experience of good food. The way that wine and food speak to each other is critically important to the appreciation of both. Think of musical instruments either in tune or not.  Read More »
