Saxum Booker Vineyard 2013 1.5L
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Wine AdvocateFrom an east facing, two-acre block in Eric Jensen's estate Vineyard, the 2013 Booker Vineyard is another terrific red that has full throttle notes of blackberries and assorted dark fruits, ground herbs, gamy meat and crushed rock. Big, full-bodied, concentrated and with a stacked mid-palate and a blockbuster finish, it has the fruit and texture to impress on release, yet the balance and depth to evolve for 15 years or more. Note, this cuvee always incorporates a healthy dose of Mourvedre, which is a variety that Smith continues to think has more and more potential for the region.
