Tablas Creek Vineyards were the pioneers of making Rhône style wines in California; now the pioneer, this red features 5 varieties of Rhône: the dark fruit, mineral and spice of Syrah; the brightness and fresh acidity of Grenache; the structure and meatiness of Mourvèdre; and small additions of Counoise and Terret Noir for complexity. Oh, did you get all that? Oh, we spoke too long? Oh, the bottle's done because it's just so damn delicious?
