2014 Saxum "Booker Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1299947 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Made from 68% Syrah and 32% Mourvèdre, the 2014 Booker Vineyard is more elegant than the 2013, yet has terrific intensity and depth. Loaded with notions of blackberries, chalky minerality, spring flowers and violets, it has sensational purity of fruit, full-bodied richness, and building tannin. It shows the suppler side to the 2014 vintage and is certainly approachable today, yet it will be at its best from 2019-2029+. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Booker Vineyard is a blend of 68% Syrah and 32% Mourvèdre and has a deep garnet-purple color, displaying aromas of cassis, espresso, violets and dried herbs with suggestions of bacon fat, lavender and Sichuan pepper. Full-bodied, rich and with beautifully ripe, fine-grained tannins, it has a generous mid-palate of ripe, rich fruit and great length, giving up loads of spice notes. (LPB) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Opaque ruby. Expressive, spice- and mineral-accented aromas of red and dark berry liqueur, incense and licorice pick up cola and rhubarb notes with aeration. Sweet and concentrated but also energetic and penetrating on the palate, offering intense black raspberry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors and a bracing suggestion of peppery spices and smoky minerals on the back half. Finishes sappy, sweet and impressively long, with resonating floral and spice notes and supple tannins build slowly, adding shape and gentle grip to the wine's juicy fruit. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A real bruiser, but this maintains a sense of depth and breeding, with floral raspberry jam and mocha aromas and intense, layered blackberry, peppered beef and crushed stone flavors that gain speed toward big but polished tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (4/2018)
