Tale of Two Cities

Two really disappointing wines.  Thin, fruity vacations like 8€ Cote-Rotie’s.  And no matter how hard I try, I don’t get the Tablas Creek fascination.  Have YET to taste a wine of theirs which compels.  Everything tastes like St. Cosme or worse.  Nowhere NEAR their pricepoint in the Rhone.

2011 Straight Line Santa Barbara County Syrah: 14.4
2012 Tablas Creek Paso Robles 2012 Patalin:  13.8
