A Rhone Blend, Deconstructed with Tablas Creek

The wines from the Rhone, as well as from American ‘Rhone Rangers’ are almost always blends. But what do each of the grapes bring to the ensemble? Tablas Creek Vineyard, in Paso Robles, California, is one of very few Rhone specialists to produce varietal bottlings of all four of the Rhone’s most important red grapes. In this seminar, Tablas Creek’s proprietor Jason Haas will host an interactive discussion and tasting of five wines: their flagship ‘Esprit de Tablas’ blend, and four small-production wines, normally available only at the winery’s tasting room, that make up its components.
