JEB DUNNUCK 96-100 POINTS - "One of the leaders of the Paso wine scene is undoubtedly Eric Jensen's Booker Vineyard (I've affectionately called this group the motley crew before). Jensen and his wife Lisa purchased these 72 acres in 2001, with their wines released in 2005. Since then, the wines have evolved from uber rich and forward, to today where they're more polished, complete and structured."
"Black raspberries, cassis, licorice, and hints of vanilla all flow to a gorgeously pure, seamless, silky, layered beauty that has sensational tannin quality, a great mid-palate and a clean, lengthy finish. 2016 Fracture is a killer barrel sample."
ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 95+ POINTS - "Made of 100% Syrah aged 18 months in 70% new French oak, the 2016 Syrah Fracture is deep garnet-purple colored, opening with exuberant notes of crushed blackberries, black cherries and cassis with hints of asphalt, star anise, truffles and mossy bark. Full, firm and with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins, it has tons of taut, muscular fruit, finishing long and mineral tinged."
