2016 Booker "The Ripper" Paso Robles Grenache

SKU #1362460 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Ripper reminds me of a top vintage of Marcoux Vieilles Vignes cuvée from Châteauneuf du Pape with its huge nose of kirsch, blackberries, ground herbs, blueberries, graphite, and melted licorice. This beauty is full-bodied and powerful, yet also elegant, seamless, and graceful on the palate, with fine tannins and a huge finish. It’s an incredible Grenache. Eric Jensen’s Booker Vineyards continues to make a ripe, sexy, pedal-to-the-metal syle of wine and these latest 2016s don’t disappoint. Inner quote mark (11/2018)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A ripe grenache, sporting dark, dried blackberries and plums, set against an extensive backdrop of vanilla and nutmeg. Full-bodied yet linear and driven. Touch of wood at the end. Inner quote mark (3/2019)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Densely structured yet blanketed in polished veneer, offering bold blackberry, smoky pepper, garrigue and river stone accents that take on speed toward broad-shouldered tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (3/2019)
