Fresh is the key word for the 2018 White. This vintage is more vibrant than the wine has been in the past, taking us back to the original 2005 White. While there was skin contact, it was limited, and there was no Chardonnay in the blend this year. This allowed the Roussanne and Viognier to sing. The palate shows a mix of marmalade, honeysuckle and fresh, ripe peaches with hints of floral. As always, our whites will age 15 years without a problem.
56% Syrah, 22% Mourvèdre, 22% Grenache
Continuing to honor the fine wines of Châteauneuf du Pape, the Oublié 2017 does not disappoint. It shows off a deep youthful ruby color beneath a purple rim. Initially, a plethora of spicy, red cherry, raspberry and red plum aromas envelope the senses and evolve into even brighter but rounded red cherry and plum flavors on the palate. Lively minerality and young playful tannins hint at the lineage to the noble wines of the southern Rhône.
2017 MY FAVORITE NEIGHBOR
My Favorite Neighbor opens softly with luscious, dark fruit notes, seamlessly crosses the mid-palate and leaves you with a lengthy finish of blackberry compote and espresso.
