Tablas Creek 2006 Cotes de Tablas Blanc
What not to eat with this wine: blackened tuna. The Cotes de Tablas could stand up to a chicken in a heavy cream sauce or would be good with just grilled chicken and vegetables - just don't pair this wine with spice. This would be the perfect Thanksgiving day wine with Turkey - I just couldn't wait.
Tablas Creek used 59% Viognier, 32% Marsanne, 6% Grenache Blanc, & 3% Roussanne to make this white Rhone blend. I picked it up at Sam's Wine for $18. It's a bit pricey, but it stands out from it's competition: 6/10 rating.
