92 points Wine Enthusiast: "There's a strongly stony streak on the nose of this blend of 40% Syrah, 33% Grenache, 21% Mourvèdre, 3% Counoise and 3% Terret Noir, which also offers dried berry and purple-flower aromas. The palate is earthy and full of rocky flavors, yet also offers black-raspberry, red-plum and wild herb elements. Alcohol 13%. (Oct 2020)"
91 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "[$25 list] Medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Patelin de Tablas is a blend of 40% Syrah, 33% Grenache, 21% Mourvèdre, 3% Counoise and 3% Terret Noir. It retains some rubbery aromas with notes of tar, soil and cassis. The medium to full-bodied palate has restrained flavors with a grainy frame, good freshness and an understated finish. 2,400 cases produced. Drink: 2020-2025. (Oct 2020)"
91 points Purely Domestic Wine Report: "[$25 list] The nose is notably earth, mineral and a mix of savory herb along with ripe plum. The palate entry is bright, a touch herbal-green with notes of washed raspberry, subtle waxy red fruit and spice. Drink 2020-2024. Alcohol 13.0%. (The Value Guide, Vol. 1.1, 2021)"
90 points Wine Spectator: "[$25 list] Lively and approachable yet elegantly structured, with floral raspberry, smoky bay leaf and black pepper flavors that finish with zesty tannins. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Counoise and Terret. Drink now through 2027. (12/15/20)"
Producer notes: "40% Syrah, 33% Grenache, 21% Mourvedre, 3% Counoise, 3% Terret Noir. A dark, spicy Syrah-driven nose reminiscent of Cornas: teriyaki, black olive, eucalyptus and black plum. On the palate, meaty and juicy, with flavors of soy marinade, black raspberry, wood smoke and white pepper. The long, gently tannic finish lingers with black fruit and spice. Delicious now, but with the substance and balance to age for up to a decade. Alcohol 13.0%."
