Tablas Creek 2002 Esprit de Beaucastel Red (Paso Robles)

This Mourvedre-dominated wine doesn't have the super-hung meat, gamy aroma that plagued previous vintages. Instead, it offers complex aromas of ripe stone fruits and berries, with a suggestion of leather, herbs and smoky oak. It's soft and creamy, but the tannins kick in on the finish. Drinkable now, and could improve dramatically through the decade.
