"Made from 100% Grenache brought up all in barrel, the 2016 Ripper is about a sexy as they come. Black raspberries, incense, crushed flowers, blackberry jam and spring flower notes all give way to a rich, structured, gorgeously elegant red that's up with the creme de la creme."
This wine is so sexy and seductive! Just a pure, feminine wine that is true to its variety. At its best from Booker, Ripper is from a North facing block and is not a massive, dark, heavy wine. It is a bowl full of red fruits with the perfect amount of acid and a generous amount of mid-palate weight. Don't confuse it to be a Tuesday night wine; it could be blind-matched with the top Grenaches in the world (especially the ones that don't need to add Syrah to be great!).
