2018 FRACTURE DUO
A special opportunity to taste and compare wines that are two of a kind! Each year we bottle our reds twice. The first bottling is in early Spring after about 18 months of age. The second bottling takes place in late summer or early fall and represents our wines from the vintage that went through extended-aging in French oak barrels. This duo includes an Fracture from both of those bottlings! Taste them side by side for a fun comparison with your wine-loving friends or enjoy a bottle now and save one for later! Often described as a Booker flagship, Fracture is one of the world’s great Syrahs. Only the softest Syrah in barrel makes the cut for this dense and powerful wine. The namesake pays homage to the calcareous soil in our vineyard, the limestone causes it to ‘fracture’.
Deep and mysterious at first sight, the 2018 vintage is rich and velvety on your palate. There is an interesting balance of earth and fruit, with traces of sweet beets, dark plums and chocolate. Though this silky wine will pair with anything, our thoughts are going to salty popcorn by the fire or Dutch Gouda cheese with some black truffle mustard.
2018 FRACTURE EXT
Fracture extended-aged is a rich blanket of Syrah across your palate. The silky mouthfeel shows drunken cherries and dark chocolate. While we are tempted to skip straight to dessert with this wine, we could also see it paired with osso bucco or a rich mushroom pasta.
