Oublié 22 Months Grenache Blend 2016

Booker Vineyard Oublie 22 2016 Paso Robles, California

This is a delicious GSM Blend from Paso Robles. Soft and smooth with nice complexity.

Showing a great nose, very flowery and complex.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, currants, light oak, spices, vanilla, light barnyard, peppercorn, tobacco leaf, chocolates, coffee, cola, earth and black tea.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This 5 year old is drinking very nicely now and will continue to age in the next 10 years.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime. Peaked after 3 hours, showing nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board. Very tasty.

A blend of 55% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre and 5% Syrah. Aged in French oak barrels for 22 months.

15% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Koenig Gewurztraminer 2017, Alsace, France


Light lemon in color with a golden hue.

Gorgeous nose of white flowers, lemons, honey, melons, yellow apples, tropical fruits, minerals, diesel, spices, white pepper, pineapples and light earth.

Full bodied and buttery, with medium plus acidity.

Off dry on the palate with citrus, red apples, melons, pears, minerals, light spices, light earth, tropical fruits and light herbs.

Medium plus on the finish with lemons.

This is a delicious Gewurztraminer from France. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouth feel.

Very nicely balanced with enough fruits for the acidity.

This 4 year old aged nicely so far, and would be nice to revisit it in 3 years, and see how it evolved.

Last year I had the 2018 vintage, and it is much nicer with some age.

Easy drinking and good by itself or with food. I had it all by itself by the pool.

Kosher and Mevushal.

Wester Reach Chardonnay 2019

Delectable Wine

The 2019 Chardonnay Wester Reach is a terrific appellation level wine. Crushed rocks, lemon confit, slate and green orchard fruit all grace this taut, nervy Russian River Chardonnay. The 2019 is beautifully done. The blend of sites is 30% DuMOL Estate, 22% Dutton-Morelli, 16% Flax Estate, 16% Heintz and 16% Ritchie. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2021)
