The 2017 Booker Fracture begins with wild dark forest fruits, black cherry, plum, blueberry, and blackberry with sumptuous vanilla and toasty aromas. This encapsulates everything a Syrah wants to be: bright but rich, smooth but powerful. Lots of savory and spice with a bright white mineral spine. Evolving beautifully in the glass, this Syrah will develop well into the next decade.

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"A wine of distinction and breadth, with an expressive core of crushed-stone minerality, wrapped in complex blackberry, garrigue and freshly cracked pepper flavors that build toward big but polished tannins. Best from 2021 through 2026. 1,928 cases made." -TF, 11/30/19
