Aroma: A deep nose, marked equally by Mourvedre and Syrah: mocha and currant reduction, chalky minerality and spicy eucalyptus. Mouth Feel: The mouth is dense yet not heavy, with flavors of sugarplum and rare steak, a reverberating red/black licorice note, and tremendous texture. The long finish, with lingering flavors of wood smoke, roasted meat, plum skin and crushed rock, hints at more rewards to come with cellar aging.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Esprit de Tablas contains more Syrah than has been the norm in recent years, a reflection of its unusually fine quality in this vintage. A blend of 46% Mourvèdre, 31% Syrah, 18% Grenache and 5% Counoise, the wine reveals youthful notes of strawberries, licorice and aromatic bark. On the palate, it's textural, medium to full-bodied and savory, with fine-grained tannins, good balance and nice depth and dimension. It will be bottled in July and seems to be a very promising rendition of Esprit de Tablas.

Wine EnthusiastExotic cherry aromas mix with mace and other rum-barrel spices on the nose of this blend of 46% Mourvèdre, 31% Syrah, 18% Grenache and 5% Counoise. There's a burst of red cherry and tart strawberry on the palate, which then settles into a smooth suave texture.
