Tablas Creek - 2014 Cotes de Tablas

Tablas Creek - 2014 Cotes de Tablas

Composition:  44% Grenache, 36% Syrah, 12% Counoise, and 8% Mourvedre,  from Tablas Creek estate fruit

Price: $35 at Tablas Creek in Paso Robles, CA.  Can be found at Spec's for a little closer to $30.

Notes:  Starts off with loads of red fruit (raspberry and cranberry), followed by some spice, minerality, and earthiness.  There's a touch of a green element too (eucalyptus?).  Medium body and tannins but it has a lot going on, and it doesn't show any heat from the 15% ABV.  Well made and well balanced.
