Booker Vineyard 2016 Oublie
Oublie is one of Booker's lightest blends. It aims to mimic a Chateaneuf du Pape and pair well with all types of food. The name is a French term for the “forgotten" and references the Counoise grape which was used in the original blend, though uncommonly seen in California wines.
A blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre, fermented with roughly 40% Stems, the 2016 Oubile is incredibly primary and has a southern Rhone like profile of black raspberries, peppery spice, and dried herbs. Full-bodied, elegant and silky, with fine tannin, it's an incredible wine. 95-97+ points
