2017 Booker Wines Oublié

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 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 flavors on the palate. Lively minerality and young playful tannins hint at the lineage to the noble wines of the southern Rhône.

2014 Robert Mondavi To Kalon Vineyard The Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep in the heart of Napa Valley, H.W. Crabb planted a vast empire of vines in the 1860s. Eventually it grew thick with grapes, orange trees, and Italian chestnuts. So rich was it with life and bounty that Crabb nobly bestowed upon the wine produced from the vineyard the Greek name "To Kalon", or "highest beauty".
Today, To Kalon Vineyard Company is dedicated to crafting unique expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon from this storied place.

"The nose is aromatic, elegant and offers a fine richness. It reveals notes of crushed cassis, strawberry and small notes of blackberry associated with fine touches of violet, Sichuan pepper as well as discreet hints of sweet spices, nutmeg and a very discreet hint of mild tobacco. The mouth is fruity, juicy, elegant and offers gourmandize, a good definition as well as an acidulous frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy cassis, fleshy blackberry and small notes of wild strawberry associated with small touches of red berries, violet as well as discreet hints of grey pepper and cardamom/nutmeg. Tannins are elegant."

2021 Lingua Franca Avni Pinot Noir

Estate grown Avni 2021 PN is subtle and mouth filling, immediately pleasing and rich. The large proportion of complexly flavored fruit from shallow Gelderman soils combines seamlessly with the richer fruit flavors of Pommard and 115 clone Pinot Noir on Jory and Nekia soils. The wine has many layers that unfold with both red and black cherry fruit, tea, rose petal, savory and mineral nuances, finishing with a round, plummy texture. 2021 Avni will count among the best we have ever made.
