Tasting Notes:

91 points "The 2012 Booker Vineyard is extremely raw and unformed at this stage. Still on its gross lees, the 2011 is in need of a racking. This site typically delivers big, bold wines. I expect that will be the case here as well, but time will tell. It will be interesting to see how things turn out after bottling. (91-94)." Best -2024

97 points "Even better, and up with the top 2-3 wines in the vintage, the 2012 Booker Vineyard is a blend of 73% Syrah and 27% Mourvedre that saw 30% whole clusters during fermentation and aging in 60% new 350-liter French oak hogsheads. Possessing an insane level of purity and focus, with liquid violets, white chocolate, ground pepper, spice and licorice-laced dark fruit all soaring from the glass, this is a decidedly fresh, focused and elegant example of the vineyard. Nevertheless, it doesn’t skimp on fruit or texture and has awesome depth, richness and length. Like most of these 2012s, it should benefit from short-term cellaring, and knock your socks off over the following decade. (97-99)." Best -2024

93 points "Presents a massive core of earth- and dark berry-driven flavors, with dense mineral, graphite, crushed berry and rock, mocha and raspberry accents. Ends with a sturdy wall of tannins. Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2016 through 2028. 389 cases made." Best 2016-2028
