2019 Tablas Creek Patelin De Tablas Blanc

2019 Tablas Creek Patelin De Tablas Blanc

This is the first time we’ve seen a bottle from Tablas Creek grace the Costco wine shelves, and it’s a very welcome addition.

As you may know, Tablas Creek is a Paso Robles based winery co-founded by the Perrin family of Rhone/Beaucastel fame. Perrin wines, which we are big fans of, can run the gamut from inexpensive basic Rhone bottles all the way up to the Hommage a Jacques Perrin that can run $600+. Check out the ratings here on that wine.

Back to this one, Tablas Creek focuses on making wines in Paso Robles using Rhone varietals, both red and white. The makeup for this bottle is 35% Grenache Blanc, 25% Roussanne,19% Viognier, 14% Marsanne and 7% Clairette Blanche. Definitely a little something different, and it turned out great.

It’s also worth calling out the price Costco brought this in at. This same wine is $27 at Total Wine, and about that same mid-$20 range at most other outlets where we’ve seen it. Costco’s price is good at$19.99. And note the Wine Spectator rating of 93 points. Let’s get into it.

The wine pours a medium gold in the glass with citrus fruit and fresh flowers on the nose. It has nice acidity, medium in body; flavors of tangerine, lemon and grapefruit; very pleasant throughout, a very nice wine.

If you’re a white wine fan looking for something different, it doesn’t get much more unique than this one. If you’re a Rhone fan, then it’s even more of an easy choice.

This is a great deal at the price, it is one penny cheaper than the Vinsider price they charge for those of us who purchase their spring and fall shipments (6 bottles), the usual price for this is $25. Obviously Costco purchased their remaining inventory of the 2019, as it is listed as sold out on the winery home page. You may want to check out their blog, it has a lot of interesting stories and latest happenings at Tablas Creek. https://tablascreek.typepad.com/

This is a must visit winery for those of you who are lucky enough to get out to the Central Coast of California.

Please share which Costco locations this has been seen. A few years ago I bought this here in DC/VA/MD area. Excellent wine and value. Would love to stock up again.

Similar comment from a reader, Edward, who said the following which I agree with.

It would be extremely helpful if Costco were to allow access to the wine inventory for each store, to assist us in looking for and selecting individual wines. This would merely require that they let members select from the inventory which is already available to Costco. Could you make comment in one of your articles, if you agree? Or publish this comment, to see if members would agree? Thank you.

It is also is the first winery to achieve Regenerative Organic Certied in Paso. Their tasting staff is intent in educating while tasting. Fabulous place. Great value wines.
