"The Tablas Creek Vineyard Esprit de Beaucastel 2003 is a blend of four estate-grown varietals, propagated from budwood cuttings from the Château de Beaucastel estate. The grapes were fermented using native yeasts in open and closed stainless steel fermenters. After pressing, the wines were moved into barrel, blended, and aged in 1200-gallon French oak foudres before being bottled in May 2004. The wine is unfined and unfiltered. The 2003 Esprit de Beaucastel is dark black-red in color, with a rich briary nose of blackberry and rare steak. The elegant, layered palate shows spicy plum and cherry fruit, smoky flavors and ripe tannins. The long finish shows flavors of mineral and black cherry. The wine is showing remarkably well now, but should evolve elegantly in bottle for 10-15 years or longer." Best 2006-2016

92 points "92 RP -- The outstanding clone of the famed Châteauneuf du Pape Beaucastel, the 2004 Esprit de Beaucastel is a combination of 50% Mourvèdre, 27% Syrah, 17% Grenache, and 6% Counoise. There are 3,500 cases of this beauty, which exhibits peppery, earthy, gamy, meaty characteristics intermixed with black cherry, cassis, and new saddle leather. Dense, rich, spicy, and exuberant, impressively made as well as well-balanced, it can be drunk over the next decade."
