2016 Booker "Fracture" Paso Robles Syrah

SKU #1425608 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The base 2016 Fracture is another flat-out awesome wine from Jenson that has everything you could want from a Syrah grown on limestone soils on the west side of Paso Robles. Made from 100% Syrah aged in 70% new French oak, it offers a huge nose of blackcurrants, toasty oak, espresso, smoke tobacco, and crushed flowers. Deep, massively concentrated, and textured, it still glides across the palate with thrilling purity of fruit and has a great, great finish. Inner quote mark (11/2018)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Made of 100% Syrah aged 18 months in 70% new French oak, the 2016 Syrah Fracture is deep garnet-purple colored, opening with exuberant notes of crushed blackberries, black cherries and cassis with hints of asphalt, star anise, truffles and mossy bark. Full, firm and with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins, it has tons of taut, muscular fruit, finishing long and mineral tinged. (LPB) 95+ Inner quote mark (10/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Spirited and bold yet polished, with expressive crushed stone, blueberry and smoky mocha accents that build richness toward big but refined tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark If you like big, but not massive Syrah reds, then this bold and ripe wine could be for you. A ton of ripe blackberries and the full body are balanced by supple tannins and a discreet twist of tartness that keeps the finish rather bright. Inner quote mark (3/2019)
