94 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The ruby/semi-opaque colored 2013 Oublie is a sensational blend of 46% Grenache, 34% Mourvedre and 20% Counoise that offers a seamless, layered and complex array of blueberry, black raspberry, dried flowers, vanilla bean and spice on the nose. Pure silk on the palate, with full-bodied richness and no hard edges, this impeccably balanced red has a full, layered mid-palate, sweet tannin and a terrific finish. One of those wines where the bottle's empty before you know it, drink this beauty over the coming 5-8 years."
"Oublie is one of our lightest blends. It aims to mimic Chateaneuf du Pape and pair well with all types of food. The name is a French term for the âforgottenâ, this refers to the Counoise grape which is less commonly seen in California wines." - Winery
About the Producer
"At Booker Vineyard we have dedicated our lives to farming perfection. We are constantly striving to find perfect balance in our vineyard through sustainable farming practices and methods. Beginning in the spring of 2010 we began our venture into the world of Biodynamics. Our wines are always 100% estate fruit and are a true reflection of the calcareous and salicious shale hillsides provided by our Westside Paso Robles vineyard." - Winery
"The name Booker comes from the two orphan brothers, Claude and Dick Booker, who had purchased the land in the late 1920âs. By the turn of the century the Booker brothers had acquired over 1,200 acres on Paso's Westside. The Booker brothers were Paso's favorite sons, dedicating their lives to being great farmers and humanitarians. Aside from lending their farming knowledge and manual labor to neighbors and those in need, they were the area's biggest philanthropists, leaving 100% of their estate to charity when they passed, Dick in 1990 and Claude in 2000.
"Eric and Lisa Jensen purchased 72 acres of the property in 2001 with the intent of growing the best fruit for some of the best wineries in the area (Linne Calodo and Saxum). After making wine with Justin Smith (of Saxum) for five years and Stephan Asseo (of L'Aventure Wines) for two years the Jensens decided it was time to create their own expression with Booker Vineyard. The 2005 Vintage was Booker Vineyard's first release with the wines being made by owner Eric Jensen." - Distributor
While certainly the character of Pasoâs winemaking motley crew, Booker Vineyardâs Eric Jensen is dead serious when it comes to wine. Creating the estate in 2005 (they planted their vineyard in 2001), today he farms one of the greatest vineyards in the appellation and his wines consistently rank in the top two or three produced in a vintage. Looking at the new 2013s reviewed in this report (his 2012s were all reviewed last year), this vintage was described by Eric as his âholy grailâ vintage, and I couldnât argue with him. These are incredible wines that have another level of depth and texture over past vintages, yet donât give an inch with regard to purity, precision or focus. The only drawback here is the wines are made in tiny quantities and are moved almost exclusively through his mailing list. Nevertheless, these 2013s are hands down the finest wines to date from this brilliant estate."Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #220
