My favorite taste of Booker white so far, but this still isn't my favorite as I'm not wild about Rhone whites in general. Well made, just not my style.

Really nice, similar to the Ripper this is just fleshy fleshy fruit central. A little more simple red fruit in my book.

Great fleshy fruit, more raspberry, less of a tannic monster than the EXT 22mo. This spent 18mos in oak, and is a little fresher for it.

WOTN for me. Extra 4 months in barrel over the standard (22 mo. vs 18 mo.) The extra time does give it more wood, more tannin, and more grip. A massive wine it desperately needs some time in bottle to settle down. Tertiary leather, floral, and more tannin than the standard.

My first taste specifically of the Booker Tempranillo EXT. Really enjoyed it, one of the highlights of the night. Deep raspberry, herbs & tobacco, great earth
