    April 22, 2019 - Big, ripe , lots of fruit full bodied Syrah. Bouquet expands and really opens up after two hours of decant

    April 19, 2019 - Real crowd pleaser. Drank at Da Umberto in NYC. Silky smooth, in a great drinking window right now. Lots of fruit, but not at all over done. Booker wines have yet to disappoint, always a pleasure.

    March 22, 2019 - Dark purple, glass staining legs. A little muted on the nose but hints of rich dark fruit, dried violets, slight pepper, earthy and meaty undertones with a little smoke and oak. Full bodied with a lush/silky texture. Tannins have calmed down and acid is balanced well. Rich dark fruit, a little earthiness but not really showing much age or secondary flavors other than a slight earthy/forest floor but very discreet. Would rate higher but a little straightforward and not sure will improve but this is a really good wine especially for the vintage. Stopped buying these wines a few years ago as most were a little over the top and not as balanced as I would like but this is an exception and great example of Paso Rhône style wines. The price when I bought this I believe was about a third less than it is now as well so would say this was a good QPR.

    December 8, 2018 - Syrah & Shiraz Tasting (Gary's Place, Minneapolis): Outstanding wine and really drinking well. Decanted one hour. Smooth and polished with violets, raspberries, spice, pepper and dust. Balanced and good acidity. This wine should drink well for another five plus years. Outstanding Paso Robles Syrah.

    November 15, 2018 - Pop and pour. Silky, full-bodied Syrah with nice balance, firm tannins, dark fruit. Really charming and great wine for 2011.
