Oublié 24 Paso Robles Mourvedre Blend 2012

From Eric Jensen at Booker, we had this after that bottle of Understory I just posted. Can’t recall too many details except to say that it was excellent but likely just past peak. If you have this in your cellar, I’d recommend popping the cork within the next few years. — a day ago

El Centimo

Lot 532 Real Rioja Tempranillo 2010

Tempranillo blend with Grenache and Graciano. Plenty of tannins that needed more than an hour to open up and let you taste the fruit it was hiding. Dark, vibrant fruits were exposed that gave the wine body and complexity. A potent, vibrant 10 year old wine that could be stored another 10 years and gain in complexity. Interestingly it had a metal coin on top of the cork that we didn’t realize it was there... so pushing in the automatic cork screw actually pushed the cork into the bottle 🤨. Oh well, we survived 😋 — 15 days ago

Orange One Tocai Friulano Blend

I wanted a bit more but this unfortunately froze in my now defunct wine fridge and some of the wine leaked pass the cork, a shame. All you expect from an amber, oxidized, nutty, savory, some caramelized peach. — 2 months ago

CrossBarn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

New label. Don’t like it. Reminds me of low cost wine labels. Wine inside is still worth opening the cork though. — 9 days ago
