"The 2003 Côtes de Tablas is a rich, spicy wine, with a juicy, meaty nose of rare steak, pepper and blueberry. The flavors are juicy and rich, with ripe tannins and a finish laced with licorice." Best 2006-2010

91 points "91 RP -- The 2003 Côtes de Tablas Blanc, a blend of 45% Viognier, 32% Marsanne, 16% Grenache Blanc, and 7% Roussanne, is a full-bodied, light golden-colored, tank-fermented and aged effort offering notions of citrus blossoms, pineapples, and other exotic fruits, loads of personality, and a dry, crisp, food-friendly personality. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years."

91 points "The 2003 Cote de Tablas, a blend of 60% Grenache, 24% Syrah, 12% Mourvedre, and 4% Counoise, represents a souped-up version of a California Cotes du Rhone. Its sweet candied cherry/kirsch liqueur, licorice, resiny, loamy soil, and white pepper notes are followed by a generous, medium to full-bodied, pure, complex, delicious wine to drink over the next 3-4 years." Best 2005-2009
