IWC 91 WA (88-90) Pts - According to International Wine Cellar - Brilliant ruby. Zesty redcurrant, cherry and floral aromas are deepened by notes of licorice and cola. Concentrated red fruit flavors show an appealing sweetness and pick up a spicy nuance with air. Juicy, penetrating and seamless on the finish, which is framed by supple, harmonious tannins. This wine delivers outstanding value.
According to Wine Advocate - Looking at the 2012 reds, which were all tasted out of barrel, the 2012 Patelin de Tablas offers beautiful Grenache character with violet and floral-tinged aromas and flavors, medium body and loads of fruit and texture. It will be a delicious, easy-drinking blend geared for drinking over the coming 3-4 years. Drink 2014-2017.
According to Antonio Galloni - The 2012 Patelin de Tablas, tasted from barrel, is shaping up to a be a jewel of a wine. Dark red fruit, spice, tobacco and licorice notes are given an extra dimension of breadth and volume in this deeply expressive, generous vintage. I can't wait to taste the 2012 again once it has been bottled.
