  • "This is a great Booker Vineyard. It has everything that we have come to love from this bottling. Soaring dark Syrah dominant aromatics, rich texture, and silky smooth, long tannins. There is a bit more new French oak used here, and it really helps to flesh out that structure. It is a classic. If you like our Booker, you will love this version."  Notes from the Winemaker

    • Wine Profile

      "The 2018 Booker Vineyard, a blend of 74% Syrah and 26% Mataro, has gregarious aromas of baked blackberries, coffee, dark earth and licorice with loads of spicy accents. The full-bodied palate bursts with concentrated, nuanced fruits, pure notes of chocolate and floral perfume lingering in the mouth. The sheer concentration of flavor is expertly foiled by its fine, silt-like tannins and seamless freshness, and it finishes with tremendous length and detail. I appreciate how drinkable this is straight from the bottle, though it will have more to show with time in the cellar."  Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
