Wine Advocate Review
A blended barrel sample, the 2018 Cotes de Tablas Blanc is made up of 40% Viognier, 35% Grenache Blanc, 20% Marsanne and 5% Roussanne. It's super minerally on the nose to begin, with petrichor, gunflint and toasty notes, very slowly opening to citrus peel, fresh tree fruits, quince peel and baker's yeast with spicy touches. Light to medium-bodied, it's broad with fleshy fruits, juicy acidity and a long, floral-tinged finish.
The Tablas Creek Vineyard Cotes de Tablas Blanc is a blend of four estate-grown white Rhone varietals. The wine, like most wines of the Southern Rhone, is a blend of varietals, featuring the floral aromatics and stone fruit of Viognier, the crisp acids and rich mouthfeel of Grenache Blanc, and the structure and minerality of Marsanne and Roussanne.
