K&L Notes

The 2009 vintage of Tablas Creek's flagship "Esprit de Beaucastel Rouge" is a blend of 40% Mourvèdre, 28% Syrah, 27% Grenache, and 5% Counoise from their 120-acre certified organic estate vineyard in Paso Robles. The 2009 vintage saw very low yields of small, concentrated berries due to a combination of frosts in April and third-year drought conditions. For this wine, individual varieties are fermented separately in stainless steel with native yeasts and then moved into separate barrels, after which they are blended. The final cuvée is aged in large French oak foudres prior to bottling. Winemaker's notes: "The 2009 Esprit de Beaucastel shows a deep, spicy nose with dark fruit, crushed rock, cocoa and licorice. The palate shows blackberry, black raspberry, and currant fruit highlighted by a persistent minerality, lush texture and substantial but fine-grained tannins. The power of the tannins and the concentration of the wine suggest that it will benefit from short- to mid-term cellaring, and drink well for two decades or more."
