TN: 2007 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel (USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles)

  • 2007 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel - USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles (1/10/2010)
    Oh my god this is good!!! Poured through my Vinturi (only wine gadget I’ve ever owned that works), this was spectacular from the first taste and only got better. Huge crushed blackberries and pomegranate fruit, massive weight on the palate but not overpowering at all. Rich and thick, oozing with fruit and melted dark chocolate, hints of vanilla bean, coffee, cinnamon stick and licorice. A delight through and through. (95 pts.)

I committed infanticide on this one too. My bottle was quite tight to begin with(almost slightly disappointing) but became really, really good as it went. Best glass was the last. I thought it was an easy 93-94 now with a few points upside with time.

Yup, an absolutely fantastic bottle. Different than Saxum, but I’d put it in the same league easy.
