Tablas Creek 2012 Rose Dianthus Paso Robles



Winemaker Neil Collins consistently makes outstanding Roses for Tablas Creek. Although I love Spanish wines, I couldn’t resist enjoying this fine pink wine during two of our meals at La Cosecha. The 100 percent certified organic grapes, 60 percent mourvedre, 25 percent grenache, and 15 percent counoise, are grown in the winery’s estate vineyards. This pretty, violet, red-hued wine offers delicious, juicy notes of strawberries, raspberry, and plums, woven with a thread of lime juice to keep it balanced. It’s sold out at the tasting room but it’s still available in restaurants, like La Cosecha where it’s $15 per glass, and $45 per bottle. It’s also available at retail at Albertson’s Paso Robles, so grab it while you still can. Tablas Creek recommends pairing it with Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine, I’ve found it
