Wine Advocate | Rating: 95Looking at the 2011s still in barrel, the extended barrel aged 2011 Oublie 22 will see, you guessed it, 22 months in barrel prior to bottling. More bright and lifted than the regular bottling, with plenty of violet, cherry, crushed berry, cedar and spice, it has a rich, full texture, good acidity and impressive length. It, too, should have upwards of a decade of longevity. Drink 2015-2021.Author: Jeb Dunnuck
