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.
Shimmering purple. Mineral- and spice-accented black raspberry, boysenberry and candied violet on the highly perfumed nose. Shows superb depth as well as energy to the alluringly sweet red and blue fruit preserve, vanilla, fruitcake and candied violet flavors, which are complemented by smoky bacon and cracked pepper flourishes. Finishes smoky, broad and extremely long, displaying repeating florality and youthful tannic grip. Two-thirds new French oak. (JR)
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. (EB)
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. (TF)
