The BOOKER Fracture is one of the world’s great Syrahs. It’s a dense and powerful wine, with ratings and scores to back it up. The last ten Robert Parker scores for this wine averages 98 points. In 2013 this wine was ranked #68 on Wine Spectator’s top 100 with an epic score of 100 points; so you know another BIG score is coming … I highly recommend to get some now before it garners another perfect score.

This 2018 Vintage has been called “Magical” Syrah and a “Thrill to Drink” … with 98 POINTS from JEB DUNNUCK and 97 POINTS VINOUS so far, this exotic and gorgeous Paso Robles Booker Wine will not last much longer.

Dedicated to growing fruit for some of the best wineries in Paso Robles California, Winemaker Eric Jensen, farmer and owner at Booker Winery, gained valuable experience from neighbors Stephan Asseo of L’Aventure, and friend Justin Smith of Saxum. Fracture is one of Booker’s flagship wines, with its name paying homage to the limestone that causes the calcareous soil in the vineyard to crack.

Paso Robles welcomed the cooler 2018 vintage, leading to a relaxed harvest of healthy fruit and longer hang-time for the grapes, allowing them to develop more complex flavors and aromas. This 100% Syrah is made in a silky smooth style that Eric describes as “falling into a soft pillow” that is ready to drink right off of the bottling line but also has the potential to age for another 20 years or longer.

98JD | Tasting Notes From Jeb Dunnuck,
“Another magical wine, the 2018 Fracture is based on 100% Syrah brought up in new and used French oak. Deep purple-hued, with beautiful notes of crème de cassis, blackberries, vanilla bean, toasted spices, white flowers, and a hints of charcuterie, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, perfectly integrated oak, a rounded, lush mouthfeel, and a great finish. This unabashedly Paso Robles Syrah brings loads of fruit yet stays balanced, elegant, and is simply a thrill to drink.” JEB DUNNUCK 98 POINTS

97V | Tasting Notes From Antonio Galloni Vinous,
“Youthful purple. Heady, spice-accented aromas of blackberry, blueberry cherry liqueur and pungent flowers show excellent clarity and energetic lift. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, displaying sharply defined black/blue fruit, violet pastille, cola and exotic spice flavors that turn livelier as the wine opens up. Finishes extremely long, smoky and minerally, with powerful, spicy thrust, a repeating floral note and gently chewy, polished tannins.” VINOUS 97 POINTS


*CaliHiWines VIP Note: We don’t usually see Syrah’s 98+ Points, and with only a few cases available, it’s super rare. If you enjoy this superb Syrah varietal in 100% Pureness, or perhaps Rhône grape varietals hand-crafted from a World-Class 100 Point Winemaker, (anything from Booker is outstanding) you may want to stock-up with this 2018 Fracture for your collection or cellar. I’m getting a Case myself, because I LOVE SYRAH, and it’s totally Killer Juice! Would love to blind taste next to Sine Qua Non. (it’s that good!)
