94 points "2007 Tablas Creek Vineyard Esprit de Beaucastel Paso Robles ($50; 44% mourvedre, 29% grenache, 21% syrah and 6% counoise) Vivid red. Impressively complex bouquet melds raspberry, cherry pit, cassis and incense, with smoky Indian spice and herbal qualities adding complexity. Rich, palate-coating red and dark berry preserve flavors verge on decadent but are nicely framed by velvety tannins. A sweet floral note come up with air and carries through the strikingly long, juicy and spicy finish. I'd serve this powerful, deeply fruity wine with braised lamb. 94"

5 stars "A blend composed of nearly half Mourvèdre, with Syrah, Grenache and Counoise. Châteauneuf-like aromas of kirsch, briar and black raspberry, accented with liquorice and leather. Flavours are red-fruited and complex, with a lively minerality. As Tablas Creek’s red varietal vines mature into their second decade, the wines get more impressive. 2010-2018." Best 2010-2018
