Booker Vineyard Oublié Red Rhone Blend 2014

$79.99

95 pts - rare release                                  New release from Paso cult producer Booker Vineyards. As always, limited. 95 Points Wine Spectator:  "Expressive and impressively structured, with savory blackberry aromas and accents of rosemary, thyme and crushed stone, opening to complex, densely layered flavors of currant, pepper and espresso. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Counoise. Best from 2018 through 2028." 54% Grenache, 29% Mourvèdre, 17% Counoise. Arguably the biggest and most concentrated Oublie ever, this wine reminds me one a Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes from Marcoux or Janasse. Lots of ripe red fruit characteristics but a gorgeously proportioned mid-palate that you don't usually get from Grenache and Mourvèdre. Feel free to crack this wine anytime.

Much more finesse and Han expected but still tightly wound. Needed patience but I'm impatient.

A little black and blue fruit .. a little savory green herbs.. a little grippy tannin... a lot beautiful!

Going through my booker allocation, at least the ones they say are ready to go. This one is, telling you these guys are up there with Saxum if not better. Get on board
