93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Firm, structured, and showing the coolness of the vintage beautifully, the 2010 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel (45% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache, 21% Syrah, and 4% Counoise) is a fresh, focused, and balanced red that has loads of crushed berry like fruit, licorice, sappy underbrush, and floral nuances, as well as superb underlying minerality, all emerging from the glass. Quite tight and firm on the palate, with excellent purity, juicy acidity, and a youthful, energetic feel, this will most likely require 3-5 years of bottle age o...

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Not yet bottled and tasted out of barrel, the 2010 Booker Vineyard Syrah Fracture is possibly the most impressive vintage of this to date. A blend of 100% Syrah that’s aged all in French oak, it delivers a stunning bouquet of smoked black fruits, toast, chocolate, roasted meats, and crushed flowers that gives way to a full-bodied, structured, and elegantly put together palate. Chewy, ripe tannin frames the finish beautifully, and this is impressive. It should benefit from short term cellaring on release, and have a fairly broad...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite again, however, remains the 2006 Syrah James Berry Vineyard. There is just something so delineated and complex about the wines from this site. Additionally, they seem to have more acidity, yet also the enormous richness and massive fruit extract. Blackberries, cassis, truffle, charcoal, and some subtle smoke are all present in this wine, which comes closest to a top-notch Hermitage from this area of Paso Robles. Long, rich, with striking minerality, this is a blockbuster Syrah that should age effortle...


95 points from Robert Parker: "The 2004 Panoplie is a blend of 69% Mourvedre, 21% Grenache, and the rest mostly Syrah with a touch of Counoise. This wine is showing fabulously well out of bottle, with complex earthy, gamey, smoky notes of burning embers and charcoal as well as black cherry and black currant fruit. The wine is broad, full-bodied, powerful, and rich. It is a beautiful homage to the famed luxury cuvee called Jacques Perrin from Chateau Beaucastel. This wine should evolve for at least 12-15 or more years." (Aug. 2007) 94 points from Stephen ...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More dense and rich, the 2010 Heart Stone Vineyard is a co-fermented blend of 51% Syrah and 49% Grenache that comes from a small 7-acre, south-facing vineyard located on the western side of Paso Robles. Aged mostly in large oak puncheons for 20-28 months, it offers up a savory, complex bouquet of kirsch and blackberry-like fruit, meat juice, Provencal herbs, dried licorice, and dusty minerality. Gorgeous on the palate as well, with a deft, elegant texture, building richness, and layers of chewy tannin, this beaut...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Esprit de Beaucastel flows with sweet dark cherries, flowers, tobacco and spices. It is a beautiful, classically built wine graced with striking inner perfume, lovely mid-palate juiciness and a round, utterly harmonious finish. Well-integrated, silky tannins linger on the close. This is a fabulous wine from Tablas Creek. My sense is that the wine should be tasted upon release and then again only after a number of years in bottle. In 2008 the blend is 38% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 26% Syrah and 6% Counoise...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Truly exceptional, and showing every bit as good as last year, the 2007 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel (44% Mourvèdre, 29% Grenache, 21% Syrah, and 6% Counoise) delivers awesome aromatics reminiscent of a top ’07 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, showing pure blackberry, kirsch, licorice, incense, and herbed rubbed meaty notes. Dense, concentrated, and fantastically textured, this full bodied beauty should drink well for 10 to 15 years." (11/2010) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The prodigious 2007 Esprit de Beaucastel is a blen...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Terry Hoage Vineyard is a blend of 46% Syrah, 33% Grenache, and 21% Mourvedre that comes from Jennifer and Terry Hoage’s west side Paso vineyard. Less gamey than when tasted from barrel, it offers up a pure, beautifully fresh bouquet of red and black fruits, spring flowers, ground pepper, leather, and wet stone-like minerality that flows to a rich, fabulously concentrated, and textured palate. Showing the savory, mineral characteristics of the vintage, as well as noticeable underlying tannin, this gorgeo...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2007 James Berry Vineyard has been incredibly consistent for me and was as good as it gets on this occasion. More seamless, silky and elegant than the Heartstone, it has sensational notes of kirsch, black cherries, garrigue, dried herbs and licorice in a seamless, ultra-elegant, polished profile. Incredible in every sense, and a reference point wine both for the estate and the region, it has opened up beautifully since release and is drinking gorgeously today. This is one of those wines I wish I could pour for every reader." ...

The Templeton Gap area of Paso Robles, where the fruit for this wine was grown, ordinarily experiences a cooling, maritime trend in late-summer and early fall, creating huge diurnal temperature swings (100-degree days, cool, 55-degree nights). But in 2004, this trend did not kick in and the hot days gave way to simmering 80-degree nights. The results? All the grapes to ripened at the same time! Winemaker Stephan Asseo used this unique, coincidental opportunity to create this unique blend of co-fermented Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Only 10...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Paderewski Vineyard is a new bottling from a site Smith developed for Bill and Liz Armstrong, the owners of Epoch. Zinfandel, Syrah, Petit Sirah and Mourvedre are planted in separate plots but co-fermented. Layers of dark fruit meld into flowers, mint, sweet spices, menthol, eucalyptus and plums, with marvelous density and harmony. This shows superb aromatic complexity and tons of nuance to match its absolutely striking personality. It is a dazzling effort, especially for a young vineyard in just its thi...

93-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "All from the estate vineyard and a blend of 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache, and 10% Mourvedre, the 2010 Torrin The Banshee sports a richer, fuller profile with loads of black currant and blackberry styled aromas intermixing with licorice, ground pepper, and superb underlying minerality. Full-bodied and impeccably put together on the palate, with brilliant purity and masses of ripe tannin, this serious 2010 will need 2-3 years to integrate, and should age effortlessly for upwards of 15+ years. " (06/2012) 96 points Robert Parker's Wi...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I had previously reviewed the 2008 Saxum James Berry Vineyard from a tasting at the winery, so it was enlightening to get to sit down, and drink through a full bottle. A blend of 52% Grenache, 31% Mourvèdre, and 17% Syrah, aged for 19 months in puncheons and smaller barrels, it presents an unabashedly Californian profile that oozes sweet fruit and flesh, but balances it with a seamless, weightless texture and perfect balance. Notes of sweet crème de cassis, raspberry, smoked meats, and flowers all soar from the glass and are follo...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was blown away by the 2010 Ripper, a 100% Grenache done in concrete for the first time. It boasts captivating aromatic complexity, layers of sweet, refined fruit and fabulous overall balance. Vivid red fruit, flowers, mint and spices linger on the sublime finish. The Ripper boasts extraordinary varietal expression. Making pure Grenache in Paso Robles is not easy, but this is a model of what can be achieved here. Although impeccably restrained, the sheer glycerin and richness are pure California. The 2010 Ripper...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Simply put, the 2009 James Berry Vineyard is one of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted from California, or anywhere for that matter. Bright, floral aromatics lead to expressive red fruit in this impossibly elegant, dazzling wine. A melange of rose petals, mint and licorice follows as the James Berry shows off its breathtaking clarity and finesse. Fine-grained, chalky tannins frame the exceptional finish. Frankly, I am surprised this is the first wine of the tasting. Where does one go from here? (AG)" (08...

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Glass-staining purple. Powerful aromas of black raspberry and cassis, with complicating notes of smoked meat, candied lavender and minerals. Deeply pitched, velvety and assertively flavored, with a deep dark berry preserve character enlivened by a strong kick of cracked pepper on the back. Turns spicier on the finish, leaving behind floral pastille, spicecake and licorice notes. This potent wine has the energy of Pinot Noir." (11/2011) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gorgeous aromatic int...


94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More rich and full, with additional roasted herb, licorice, and meaty aromas, the 2010 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel Panoplie is a big, dense 2010 that has loads of fruit, yet still shows the vintage with a cool purity of fruit, integrated acidity, and firm tannin that frames the finish. A blend of 60% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache, 10% Syrah that’s aged all in foudre, this full-bodied, powerful effort will require even more bottle time than the Esprit de Beaucastel, yet will have two decades or more of longevity. (JD)" (06/2012)...

Booker Vineyard is farmed bio-dynamically. They believe it keeps them in touch with their vineyard and forces them to perceive it as a living, breathing entity. Bio-dynamic farming follows the beliefs of Rudolf Steiner, who promoted a holistic approach to farming, describing that all things on the farm (including soil, plants, and livestock) are interrelated. Like many, they were skeptical of the concept at first. Eventually they came to realize, if these farming practices are good enough for some of the most discriminating wineries of the world then w...

This is the only white that Booker makes and it's a blend of Roussanne, Viognier, Petit Manseng, and Marsanne. The 2014 vintage was aged in 40% concrete and 60% French oak, making it cleaner and crisper than other vintages while still maintaining the texture this wine is known for.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I am thrilled to see the 2009 Esprit de Beaucastel burst from the glass with an exciting melange of dark red cherries, flowers, sweet herbs, mint and spices. Exotic spiced notes linger on the finish. The 2009 boasts serious intensity, richness and depth, but it remains quite tannic and in need of further bottle age. The vintage saw both frost and drought, two conditions that are a little unusual in the same year. Now that it is in bottle, the 2009 meets all of the expectations I had when I tasted it from barrel l...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Esprit de Beaucastel Panoplie is more complex than the straight Esprit, and is even more thrilling from bottle than it was from barrel. Today, the Panoplie comes across as very young. Dark cherries, flowers, mint, licorice and tobacco are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass, but ultimately the 2009 is still a very primary wine built on fruit. The 2009 boasts so much pure density that the tannins appear to be nearly buried, but they are there. This is a decidedly huge, dramatic wine from T...

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Spicy redcurrant, raspberry, licorice and pipe tobacco on the nose. Lively, precise and juicy on the palate, with flavors of red fruits, peppery spices and herbs. Gains weight and sweetness with air while maintaining vivacity, finishing with supple tannins and repeating red fruit and spice elements. (JR)" (11/2013) Wine Spectator: "Pure and juicy, with dark berry fruit, licorice and subtle tea and spice notes. Full-bodied and persistent, with tannins marked by a loamy earth edge. Caber...


95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing slightly more focus and structure than the straight Esprit de Beaucastel, the 2010 Esprit de Beaucastel Panoplie (60% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache and 10% Syrah) offers up a thrillingly rich and polished profile of blackberry, licorice, roasted herbs, spice box and assorted cured meat-like qualities on the nose. This is followed by a full-bodied wine that has layers of fruit and texture, building richness and a blockbuster finish where the quality of the wine really shows. While approachable now due to its fru...

The delightfully pure, refreshing Les Copains from the famed James Berry Vineyard in Paso Robles blends equal parts grenache and mourvèdre to great effect. The soil profile at James Berry is similar to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which explains why these two bold varietals thrive, and produce such a balanced wine. The 2006 vintage is a bit lighter in style than the 2005, highlighting the cool growing season. Jasmine, bay and raspberry aromas give way to raspberry and garrigue flavors. Already accessible, this wine will continue to drink well over the next five ...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A full-bodied, fleshy wine, the 2009 Ingenuity boasts loads of dark fruit, licorice, spices and new French oak, all of which come together in an expression of the Paderewski vineyard that is exciting and intense from start to finish. I especially like the way the 2009 fills out in all directions. Layers of black fruit, smoke and game saturate the palate in this large-scaled, opulent wine. Ingenuity is 65% Syrah, 12% Petite Sirah, 12% Mourvedre, 7% Grenache and 4% Zinfandel. (AG)" (08/2012) 93 points Stephen Ta...

94 points James Suckling: "This is rich and very long with a solid core of fruit that starts off sort of linear but opens and gives it all. Full and velvety textured with ripe tannins and violet, berry, and spice with hints flowers. Long and racy. Classy. 40% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre. Why wait?" (10/2011) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky purple. Cassis, blueberry and smoky Indian spices on the expansive, heady nose, with a sexy floral quality that gains strength with air. Deep, sappy and palate-coating dark fruit...
