The Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas Rosé is a rosé blend in the tradition of Provence, produced from three red Rhône varietals: Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Counoise. The wine incorporates fruit from nine top Rhône vineyards in Paso Robles, each vineyard selected for its quality. Like most rosé wines from the Rhône Valley, it is based on the bright strawberry fruit and fresh acidity of Grenache, with additions of deeper red fruit and structure from Mourvèdre and spice from Counoise.

The 2019 Patelin de Tablas Rosé is a vibrant light peach color. On the nose are spicy aromatics of nectarine, mandarin pith, sea spray, and crushed rock. The mouth is bright with flavors of yellow raspberry and blood orange, with mouthwatering acidity giving focus to a long finish with flavors of pink grapefruit, briny mineral, and a citrus blossom florality. Drink now and over the next year.
