The 2014 Patelin de Tablas has a dark, Syrah-driven nose that is creamy, meaty, minerally, and a little bit wild. A little blue fruit lurks underneath and comes out with air. The mouth shows both Grenache and Syrah's influence, with black plum, boysenberry, chalky minerality and nice powdered sugar tannins that come out on the finish. Decant if you're drinking now, or age for up to a decade for secondary and tertiary flavors of meat and earth.

Wine EnthusiastThis blend of 55% Syrah, 29% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 6% Counoise offers boisterous yet elegant aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and dried violet that are met with hints of crushed marjoram and white pepper. Once sipped, mulberry and exotic plum flavors mesh with wild mint on a brooding yet bright and fresh palate.

Wine AdvocateReminding me of a quality Cotes du Rhone with its darker berry fruits, pepper, earth and wild herbs, the 2014 Patelin de Tablas (56% Syrah, 29% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and the rest Counoise) is medium-bodied, juicy and charming. It's an impeccably balanced red that's ideal for drinking over the coming 4-5 years.

Wine SpectatorNot much fruit is showing except for muted raspberry and spice notes. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Counoise. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,500 cases made.
