Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel 2005

Tablas Creek Vineyard, Paso Robles, Esprit de Beaucastel 2005 The brett is dominating the nose and while it works for this style of wine, it will put off some looking for a cleaner approach in the New World. The gaminess carries through in the mouth. The tannins are ripe and there to frame this very dense, meaty wine. Grill some sausages for this baby and all will be fine. This red Rhone-style blend is composed of 44% Mourvedre, 26% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% Counoise, all organically grown. GP&B in Paso Robles 14.5% $34.99 at Bottle Barn Tablas Creek Vineyard
