It’s fair to say I was influenced early in my wine life by the whites from Tablas Creek Winery in Paso Robles, especially their “Esprit de Tablas Blanc”, and this is my homage to that wine.
This wine is a blend of 45% Roussanne, 35% Grenache blanc, and 20% Picpoul blanc.
The blend shows the floral notes and honeyed fruit characteristics typical of warmer climate Rhone varietals but is nicely balanced by good acidity and a “whisper” of French oak.
Server chilled, but enjoy how the wine changes and evolves as it warms. Enjoy with shellfish, roasted vegetables, or even an Asian stir-fry.
