2013 Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Blanc – USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles (7/22/2018)
1Day Review: Fresh and vibrant. Lemon, citrus, chalk and wet stones. Medium plus finish and several years left on this one. 90 points
Day 2 Review: This is still drinking really well. Citrus fruits, lemon oil, spices, wafer and wet stone. Medium plus finish and great acidity. This is a super wine and a great value at the $15 I paid for it. 91 points
Recommendation: This did not make it to day 3. Too tasty on day 2. Buy this if you can get it at $15 and drink over the next couple years. (91 points)
2013 Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Blanc – USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles (5/20/2018)
Day 1: Very enjoyable. More formal review on day 2.
Day 2 Review: Nose of saline, lemon oil, orange peel and spice. On the palate very nice spice, minerals, oranges, lemon oil and saline. Short to medium finish. Picks up a little Carmel 30 seconds later. Very refreshing wine and should hold form for 3 or more years. Will revisit day 3. 91 points
Day 3: Nose not as intense and palate follows suite. For sure this is not as good as day 2. 87 points
Recommendation: Should cellar well for 3 years but best enjoyable on day 2. (91 points)
