2015 Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Blanc, $18.99

We carry some lovely, interesting California white wines beyond the usual Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc, but often they get passed over. In order to bring them to light, I chose one of my favorites this month. I tend to drink white wines all year long, no matter what the weather, and this Rhône style white blend is a good one for the cooler months. Flavors of bright fruit on the front palate, with lemon meringue, peach and waxy notes leading into a dry but viscous finish. Here’s what the Wine Spectator said: “Vibrant and mouthwatering, with green apple, Meyer lemon and dried pineapple favors that are fresh and juicy. Lemon verbena and lime sherbet notes reverberate on the long, detailed finish. Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne. 93 Pts."
