The Mature 2007 Tablas Creek, Cotes de Tablas


Here is another quick post for today, also from the 2007 vintage.  I have been a big fan of Tablas Creek Vineyard for as long as I can remember.    I suppose it is only natural given my love of Rhone wines.  Since I prefer the Cotes de Tablas within the first five years I thought it would be fun to try a bottle.  I would certainly drink these sooner rather than later.  It has lost the grit of youth and is taking on a soft, sweet personality.  While it will last for several more years I suspect it will lose whats left of its verve and become too sweet.

2007 Tablas Creek, Cotes de Tablas, Paso Robles
This wine is a blend of 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and 25% Counoise sourced from the organic 125 acre estate vineyard.  It was fermented in stainless steel using indigenous yeasts then aged for 12 months in French oak foudres.  There is a nose of sweet, ripe, cherry Lifesavers.  In the mouth the cherry notes mix with blue fruits and bramble.  A sweet side comes out with notes of raw vanilla cookie dough.  Lush with a caressing personality it seems at its peak.  *** Now-2015.
