Wine Review: This yellow colored blend with a golden hue from Tablas Creek opens with a tangerine, peach pit and honeysuckle bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, round, pleasantly acidic and slightly viscous. The flavor profile is a tasty and complex blend of mineral influenced Granny Smith apple and Meyer lemon with hints of Mandarin orange, apricot and a touch of white pepper. The finish is dry and its lingering acidity makes it a bit mouthwatering. This wine would pair perfectly with crab stuffed halibut or Emeril’s crab cakes. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2018 Patelin de Tablas Blanc is intensely Rhone-like on the nose, with notes of honeysuckle, orange zest, anise, and crushed rock. In the mouth, it's lush but vibrant with mandarin orange, nectarine, white flowers, and a saline mid-palate. The long, zesty finish shows citrus pith and sea spray minerality, with a lingering orange blossom note. Pair with seafood cooked with garlic and white wine or with green salads with avocado and citrus dressing. Drink now and for the next 2-3 years.
