Reviews and Ratings

From Tablas Creek Côtes De Tablas 2017 is a red wine blend of four estate-grown Rhône varietals. Grenache gives generous red berry fruit and refreshing acidity, Syrah gives dark cherry, pepper spice and mineral flavours while Counoise gives spicy, ripe strawberry flavours and Mourvèdre dark plum and savoury herb flavours. Powerful and rich when all put together. Lovely balance for fruit to acidity with a smoky toasty oak touch. Enjoy now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
