50% Grenache, 30% Carignane, 20% Syrah. Fermented seperately in stainless, Carignane and Syrah matured in Barrique before blending. Notes of partial carbonic, guessing Carignane.
Gave and hour decant, better 1.5+. Tannin mellowed, fruit was nice, some over-ripe notes. Some darker plonk notes later on, but never overpowering. Overall, great under $15 selection. — 20 days ago

Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has frozen strawberries (thawing), juiced raspberries and orange zest.
Palate has tangerine peel, mashed strawberries, and waxy yellow apple peel. In a fine spot, don't hold these any longer. — 24 days ago
Drinking absolutely perfectly right now. Had a tasting with Eric a few years back who said he prefers his wines within the first few years, but I have to say that virtually every Booker wine I’ve had (save for the whites and roses) have improved substantially with a few more years in the cellar. We last had this in 2015, and it is substantially better now. At this stage I don’t think it’s going to improve much going forward, but it is terrific right now (so drink ‘em if ya got ‘em!). — 9 days ago
