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.
While blending this wine I was thinking of summer barbeques; Chicken, Ribs, Burgers or Dogs, this wine has you covered.
Typical of a blend from the southern Rhone Valley in France, Rehearsal is comprised of 80% Syrah and 20% Carignane, both sourced from here in the Santa Clara Valley.
In the nose you’ll find the typical red fruit, a certain “strawberry” note that tells you the wine is mostly Grenache, but in the palate it’s joined by darker fruit and spice from 7% of Syrah added to the blend.
