Booker Vineyard 2017 Fracture Syrah

Winemaker Notes
Just over half of the property is planted with Syrah. Booker puts its best barrels of Syrah into Fracture and then age in 228L Barriques. The name is a tribute to the high content of limestone in the soil. Limestone causes the vineyard soil to fracture rather than crumble.


98pts Jeb Dunnuck
Notes of crème de cassis, ground pepper, and crushed flowers emerge from the 2017 Fracture, which, as always, is all Syrah and was brought up in 65% new French oak barrels. Full-bodied, beautifully layered and textured, it has classic Booker power and richness yet shows the pretty, elegant style of the vintage as well.

94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made of 100% Syrah aged in 65% new French oak, the 2017 Fracture has a deep ruby-purple color. The nose opens with tar, chargrill, woodsmoke and roasted lamb over bitter chocolate, bay leaves, sweet spices and blue fruits. Medium to full-bodied, it gains amplitude and nuance in the mouth, firmly supported and grainy with just enough freshness on the long, flavorful finish.
