Juicy, with a core of tart lemon, lime and green papaya flavors, showing crisp acidity and hints of chamomile and floral undertones. Light-bodied and refreshing, but packing a wallop of flavor. Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Roussanne. Drink now. 1,250 cases made.-MW

A broad, deeply expressive, generous white, the 2013 Cotes de Tablas Blanc is all about volume and texture. The flavors are bright, savory and mineral, but at the same time all the elements are shaped by the warm, dry growing season. This is a decidedly big, creamy wine for the year, yet all the elements are in balance. Still I would give the 2012 at least a few more months to settle down. The blend is 39% Viognier, 29% Grenache Blanc, 20% Marsanne and 12% Roussanne. 90+ Points

Another delicious white (and one that’s almost always a super value), the 2013 Cotes de Tablas Blanc is made from 39% Viognier, 29% Grenache Blanc and 20% Marsanne and 12% Roussanne that aged all in stainless steel. Citrus blossom, lime peel, white flowers and tinges of minerality all emerge here, and this medium-bodied, steely and fresh effort stays lively and pure through the finish. Buy this beauty by the case and enjoy it over the coming couple of years.

Wine maker notes
The Tablas Creek Vineyard Cotes de Tablas Blanc is a blend of four estate-grown white Rhone varietals: Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne. The wine, like most wines of the Southern Rhone, is a blend of varietals, featuring the floral aromatics and stone fruit of Viognier, the crisp acids and rich mouthfeel of Grenache Blanc, and the structure and minerality of Marsanne and Roussanne.
