PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEWS:
The Esprit Blanc de Tablas is a blend of 75% Roussanne, 18% Grenache Blanc, and 7% Picpoul Blanc sourced from the Adelaida District AVA in the north west part of the Paso Robles AVA. The wine was fermented in a combination of foudres, stainless steel and neutral oak and was aged in neutral oak for 8 months, with malolactic fermentation carried out completely. It “shows a powerfully
Roussanne nose, with notes of beeswax, lychee, white pepper, Asian pear, white flowers, and a little cedary spice. The mouth is rich and powerful, with flavor descriptors that make it sound sweet although it is absolutely dry: lemon pound cake, pear skin, honeysuckle, and sweet oak. The wine’s rich texture is in full evidence on the long finish, while the citrus character from Grenache Blanc and a little saline minerality from Picpoul keep things feeling fresh” (winery notes). 

96 points & #63, Top 100 of 2019, James Suckling:
“An intense but balanced nose of dried daffodils, apricot pie, dried peaches, vanilla, dried nutmeg and a hint of dried citrus rind. Full-bodied with an oily texture, which is well complemented by some bright acidity and layers of stone fruit. Full and charming white. Drink now or hold.” (2/13/19)

93 points, Jeb Dunnuck:
“The 2016 Esprit de Tablas Blanc (75% Roussanne, 18% Grenache Blanc, and the rest Picpoul Blanc aged in foudre) offers a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and textured style to go with youthful notes of ripe apple, buttered citrus, and some spicy, mineral nuances. It’s still a baby yet certainly offers pleasure.” (11/29/18)

91 Points, Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
“Loads of white-flower, guava-peel and orange-blossom aromas show on the nose of this blend of 75% Roussanne, 18% Grenache Blanc and 7% Picpoul Blanc. Light pear, peach, and guava flavors make for a very mellow expression that will age for years but is drinking great now. Drink until 2030.” (9/1/19)
