"The Tablas Creek Vineyard Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc 2004 is a blend of three estate-grown varietals, propagated from budwood cuttings from the Ch√Ęteau de Beaucastel estate. The fruit was whole cluster pressed, and fermented with native yeasts. The Roussanne was fermented half in stainless steel fermenters and half in small oak "pieces", while the other varietals were fermented 100% in stainless steel. All the wines went through malolactic fermentation. The varietals were blended in May, after which the wines were racked, blended, cold stabilized, and bottled in July 2004. The 2004 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc is a vibrant expression of the terroir of Tablas Creek, with aromas of honeysuckle, pear, spice and mineral, flavors of caramel apple, lemon peel and honey, excellent breadth and a long clean finish. It should drink well when young but will also reward time in bottle. We expect it to show beautifully for at least the next 5-7 years." Best 2005-2010
