Tablas Creek "Cotes de Tablas" Paso Robles 2007

Deep red.

Vinturi - lifted crushed raspberry, cherry, earth and spearmint nose.

Round and mouthfilling with restrained textural sweetness thanks to relatively strong acidity. Cherry jam and spice finish restricted a bit by acid/tannin synergy. Wildly tasty, though, and in need of a few years in the cellar.

$25. 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 25% Counoise. 14.8% alcohol. Tin-lined screwcap.
