2010 Booker "Fracture" Paso Robles Syrah

SKU #1125640 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Fracture (Syrah) shows off gorgeous purity and finesse in its rich dark fruit. This is a decidedly overt, flashy wine, yet it also possesses stunning aromatics and impeccable, world-class balance. Layers of fruit build to the huge, opulent finish. I can hardly wait to taste this from bottle. In 2010, 100% of the fruit was de-stemmed. (AG)  (8/2012)

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 drink window.  (6/2012)

96 points Wine Spectator

 Features amazing richness, focus and purity of flavor, presented on a beam of acidity. Offers great aromatics and flavors to match, with tiers of blackberry, mahogany, wild berry, raspberry and black licorice that form a tight, persistent core, ending with a pleasant loamy earthiness. Drink now through 2026. *No. 19 Top 100 Wines of 2012, Highly Recommended* (JL)  (12/2012)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Inky purple. Explosive, spice-accented aromas of cassis, blueberry, smoky herbs and incense. Lush and creamy on the palate, offering strikingly fresh, intense black and blue fruit preserve and floral pastille flavors; bright minerality contributes spine and vivacity. Rich and improbably lithe, finishing with impressive sweetness, clarity and spicy persistence. (JR)  (12/2012)
