Tablas Creek bottles are widely distributed and easy to find in wine stores, I don't always visit their tasting room. Not only can I often find better deals at wine shops, but I have a fairly good idea what wines of theirs I prefer so a tasting isn't extremely helpful. But, I can't resist and it helps that they increased the size of the tasting menu. It also helps that they will pour and sell wines not on the typical tasting run-down and not typically found in stores.
A wine attains its ideal maturity when all of its components are balanced and offers a great aromatic complexity, not only on the nose but also resting on the palate with a persistence.
This doesn´t mean that a matured wine is necessarily an aged wine. No, rather a matured wine at its perfect drinking peak. Actually, it maybe the case in some wines that they should be consumed when young and fresh.
