“Oublié’s blend is always Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre – our California version of a Châteauneuf du Pape. The namesake is a play on the French term for “forgotten”. Rhône varietals grow beautifully on our estate and we believe that they are far-too-often forgotten when you think of a California wine. Oublié might have benefitted the most from the extra time spent aging in French oak barrels. The twenty-two month bottling shows so much maturity already with rounded tannins and vibrant acidity. Notes of rose petals and black tea fill your glass. This wine could be best served with lots of family in the backyard over a large pan of paella.”
97 Points Jeb Dunnuck – “The same blend, only aged 22 months in barrel, the 2018 Oublie 22 reveals a similar ruby/purple hue as well as slightly richer notes of black raspberries, melted licorice, spice, charcuterie, and espresso roast. Beautifully balanced, incredibly elegant, with silky tannins and a great finish, it’s up with the best GSM blend from California.”
93 Points Wine Spectator – “Broad-shouldered and deeply structured, with floral blueberry and raspberry flavors that are laced with lavender, bitter chocolate and crushed stone. The tannins tighten the finish. Hands off for now. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Best from 2023 through 2030. 2,700 cases made.”
