The unbottled 2008 whites include the 2008 Cotes de Tablas Blanc (a blend of 42% Viognier 26% Roussanne and 20% Marsanne and the balance Grenache). It exhibits attractive honeyed grapefruit lemon blossom and exotic tropical fruit notes superb freshness and good underlying acidity ripeness and length. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years.(Not yet released)This Paso Robles outpost is owned by two Francophiles Frenchman Francois Perrin (one of the owners of the Rhone Valley's Chateau Beaucastel) and Robert Haas (founder of the import company Vineyard Brands and a pioneer importer of estate-bottled French wines). Seeking out steep limestone ridges near the Pacific Ocean Tablas Creek was a work in progress for its first four to five years but it has come on like gang-busters in the 21st century. The 2007s are unquestionably their finest wines to date but readers should not overlook the excellent 2006s.

Mineral-driven aromas of lemon apple and peach pit plus a strong note of gingerbread. Less exotic than the viognier content would suggest offering taut citrus and orchard fruit flavors and good mineral snap. Finishes with an echo of peach and very good clarity and persistence.
