The Tablas Creek Vineyard Côtes de Tablas is an organic red wine blend of four estate-grown Rhône varietals: Grenache, Syrah, Counoise and Mourvèdre. Like most wines of the Southern Rhône, it showcases Grenache, featuring that grape's characteristic generous fruit and refreshing acidity, balanced by the spice and mineral of Syrah, the appealing briary wildness of Counoise and the structure of Mourvèdre.

The Côtes de Tablas has a spicy Grenache-led nose, despite the relatively high percentage of Syrah: wild strawberry, mint, fresh figs, and an undertone of chorizo-like meatiness. In the mouth, lifted fruit is balanced with richness, like strawberry shortcake, with complicating flavours of Mexican hot chocolate, cola, and fresh dates.
