2017 Saxum "Booker Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1474250 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Booker Vineyard got a few expletives and wows in the notes. It’s a full-bodied, flamboyant, straight essence of Paso Robles beauty that’s loaded with notions of black fruits, chocolate, ground pepper, candied orange peel, and spring flowers. It’s a masculine, powerhouse of a Syrah, which is classic Booker Vineyard. 98+ Inner quote mark (10/2019)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Inky ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet features ripe black raspberry, cherry liqueur, cassis, exotic spice and licorice qualities that show outstanding definition and mineral lift. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering impressively concentrated black/blue fruit preserve, violet pastille, spice-cake and savory herb flavors that slowly tighten up on the back half. Shows superb energy and breadth on a strikingly long, floral- and spice-driven finish shaped by steadily building tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Booker Vineyard is a blend of 76% Syrah and 24% Mataro. It was made with 21% whole cluster and aged 21 months in various vessels including 55% new oak and 30% amphorae. Deep ruby, it has a nose of blackberry and raspberry preserves, orange oil, dusty earth, garrigue, tar and loads of amaro accents. Medium to full-bodied, intense, layered and firm, the palate is lifted by fantastic juicy freshness and finishes long with oodles of floral and citrus accents. (EB) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Spirited yet refined, with complex layers of blackberry, dark chocolate, grilled meat and licorice that take on richness and density toward well-buffed tannins. Syrah and Mataro. (TF) Inner quote mark (3/2020)
