Eric Jensen's (of My Favorite Neighbor fame) Booker Vineyard Oublie Extended 22 Months is a big, bold red that will keep you warm and make any meaty, fall dish better. In Oublie, Jensen has focused on making an upscale Rhône-style red blend intended to compete favorably alongside high-end wines from Napa and other prestigious California appellations, and maybe even beyond. The difference is that the competition is priced in the hundreds of dollars; his is under $80. Think grilled lamb in a pepper sauce, with some caramelized, roasted carrots, parsnips and beets on the side. Or plan ahead and get it for your Thanksgiving turkey...

Jeb Dunnuck:  "The same blend of Grenache and Syrah fermented with around one-third stems, the 2016 Oublie 22 spent 22 months in barrel. As with the straight release of this cuvée, it has an exotic bouquet of blueberries, blackberries, crushed violets, ground herbs, and graphite. Deep, full-bodied, concentrated, and powerful, it’s another sensational wine from this address. Drink 2018- 2028.

Eric Jensen’s Booker Vineyards continues to make a ripe, sexy, pedal-to-the-metal style of wine and these latest 2016s don’t disappoint."  Nov 2018

Winery:  "Oublié pays homage to Châteauneuf du Pape where Grenache dominant blends are revered. It is wonderfully garnet in color with cheeky swirls of youthful purple. Initial aromas offer a myriad of dark cherry and pomegranate with some secondary notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. True to its roots, it has a truck load of tantalizing acidity, spice and savory notes with pleasing tannins. The extended aging broadens the flavors on the palate and makes it very approachable now but careful cellaring for a few years will make for more enjoyment."
