Want to end your work week in a fabulous way?  Go taste some really outstanding wines from Tablas Creek this Friday 12/10 from 4:30-7:00pm  at East Beach Wine.   This is a great opportunity to taste wine with Tablas Creek’s Tommy Oldre without having to drive all the way to Paso Robles.   He’ll be pouring six wines that span four separate vintages from the Tablas Creek estate.  The lineup includes:  2009 Cotes de Tablas Blanc (a new release), 2008 Cotes de Tablas, 2007 Syrah, 2008 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc (rated 94 points by noted wine critic Robert Parker Jr., not to be confused with Ray Parker Jr.), 2008 Esprit de Beaucastel and 2006 Esprit de Beaucastel.  The 2006 Esprit de Beaucastel is available for sale in magnum format, though from what I understand there are only a few left.  Buy one for your best friend or favorite wine blogger.  😉   This event costs only $10 and is sure to put you in the right mood to finish your holiday shopping.   And since East Beach Wine is located at 1114 State Street, you’re in walking distance from shopping (and restaurants) in any direction.   Happy quaffing and tell Tommy that you heard about the event from WineNationUnderdog.com!
