2013 Booker Paso Robles Tempranillo

SKU #1216044 96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Competing with Epoch's top-notch Tempranillo as the best example of the variety in California, Jensen's 2013 Tempranillo is a blockbuster that's not made in every vintage. Black cherries, currants, leather, dried herbs and savory spices all emerge from this full-bodied, thick and unctuously textured beauty. It has the classic tannic grip of the variety, yet that's paired with the hallmark texture and purity of the estate. This is an awesome wine any way you look at it. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Opaque ruby. The nose displays an array of dark fruit and floral scents, along with suggestions of pipe tobacco and woodsmoke. Sweet and generous in style, offering broad, edge-free flavors of blackberry and bitter cherry. Closes smooth and very long, with gentle tannins providing shape. This hefty, seamless example of Tempranillo will be delicious in its youth but also has the depth to age. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

K&L Notes

Booker Vineyard was named after orphaned brothers, Claude and Dick Booker, who purchased 1,200 acres of land on the west side of Paso Robles in the 1920s. When both brothers passed away, they left the land to charity. The winery was founded in 2001 by Eric and Lisa Jensen when they purchased 100 acres of the property. With the wines made by Eric, 2005 marked their maiden release. Jensen is focused on producing pleasurable wines, some light elegant and some bold and intense, that over-deliver for their price point. Carrying on the Booker Brothers’ vision, a portion of the winery’s profits are donated to charity.
