It's a good week for Tablas Creek accounts in the blogosphere! On Tuesday, January 8th Brad Coelho, author of the wine blog unidentifiedappellation.blogspot.com, organized and hosted a Tablas Creek and Beaucastel dinner at Zoe Townhouse in Uptown Manhattan.
The question to be addressed, in Brad's words, was:
"I didn’t know whether I’d witness a brother-sister relationship in the wines or something more akin to that of distant cousins. Nevertheless, I figured that juxtaposing wines from different areas that came from the same clones, same producer and same ideology would be an intriguing match-up. The tasting did not disappoint."
Brad has a great account of the dinner, along with full tasting notes of current and library wines from both Tablas Creek and Beaucastel, on his blog.
