2018 OUBLIÉ EXT
BLEND: 40% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 30% Syrah
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.
If Oublié is to your liking, we would also recommend Ripper!
