Grenache, Mourvèdre, 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.
Continuing to honor the ne 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 avors on thepalate. Lively minerality and young playful tannins hint at the lineage to the noble wines of the southern Rhône. 56% GRENACHE, 22% MOURVÈDRE, 22% SYRAH
92 Points, Wine Advocate
The 2017 Oublié is a blend of 56% Grenache, 22% Syrah and 22% Mourvèdre aged in 35% new French oak. Medium to deep ruby, it has broody aromas of black cherries, underbrush, cured meats, dried red currants and dried cranberries with touches of graphite. The palate is medium to full-bodied and earthy with firm, grainy tannins and great freshness to lift the long, dense finish. This needs time! 2,400 cases produced.
