Tasting Notes:
rated: March 2, 2015 , James Laub (WS)
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

98 points "From an east facing, two-acre block in Eric Jensen's estate Vineyard, the 2013 Booker Vineyard is another terrific red that has full throttle notes of blackberries and assorted dark fruits, ground herbs, gamy meat and crushed rock. Big, full-bodied, concentrated and with a stacked mid-palate and a blockbuster finish, it has the fruit and texture to impress on release, yet the balance and depth to evolve for 15 years or more. Note, this cuvee always incorporates a healthy dose of Mourvedre, which is a variety that Smith continues to think has more and more potential for the region. (98-99)." Best 2017-2028

92 points "Glass-staining purple. High-pitched cherry, cassis and licorice scents pick up spice and mineral qualities with air. Suave, densely packed red fruit preserve and violet pastille flavors are braced by juicy acidity. Distinctly lively given its weight. Dusty, fine-grained tannins come in late and shape the long, focused, floral finish. (92-94)."
