2014 Booker "The Ripper" Paso Robles Grenache

SKU #1262112 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A true gem in the vintage, the 2014 The Ripper (Grenache) is reminiscent of a top vintage of Domaine de Marcoux's Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes with its gorgeously pure bouquet of framboise, kirsch, spice box, licorice and dried flowers. Medium ruby colored and semi-opaque, this full-bodied Grenache has no hard edges, a full, layered texture and building, ripe, sweet tannin that really stretches out the finish. This is a fabulous, tour de force effort that I wish every reader could taste. It's sensational today, but should continue to shine for upwards of a decade. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby. High-pitched, mineral-tinged aromas of fresh red berries and candied flowers show outstanding clarity. Smooth, sweet and energetic in style, offering juicy black raspberry and lavender pastille flavors complicated by an exotic Asian spice nuance. The sappy, focused finish is given shape by supple, harmonious tannins that build slowly. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2016)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A wine that's all about the limestone, showing structure and focus. Dark raspberry, crushed rock and licorice aromas lead to dense but rich flavors of smoky plum, dusty sage and white pepper. Finishes with big, ripe tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (3/2017)
