2014 Booker Ripper Grenache | Paso Robles California 750ml


A true gem in the vintage, the 2014 The Ripper (100% Grenache) is reminiscent of a top vintage of Domaine de Marcoux's Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes with its gorgeously pure bouquet of framboise, kirsch, spice box, licorice and dried flowers. Medium ruby colored and semi-opaque, this full-bodied Grenache has no hard edges, a full, layered texture and building, ripe, sweet tannin that really stretches out the finish. This is a fabulous, tour de force effort that I wish every reader could taste. It's sensational today, but should continue to shine for upwards of a decade. | Wine Advocate, 98 points

With the 'Ripper', my goal is to emulate the Southern Rhone's Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Unlike most wineries in California, this wine is 100% Grenache with no added Syrah for color. 'Ripper' is true to its variety showing red fruits like strawberries, raspberries as well as hints of bubble gum and cherry cola. I do not want to overwhelm this Grenache with wood, therefore the majority was aged in concrete and the rest in large-format used barrels. I believe 2014 was a great year for Grenache, and this 'Ripper' will go down as one of Booker's finest. 362 cases produced. |
