The name Booker comes from the two orphan brothers, Claude and Dick Booker, who had purchased the land in the late 1920’s. By the turn of the century the Booker brothers had acquired over 1,200 acres on Paso’s Westside. The Booker brothers were Paso’s favorite sons, dedicating their lives to being great farmers and humanitarians. Aside from lending their farming knowledge and manual labor to neighbors and those in need, they were the area’s biggest philanthropists, leaving 100% of their estate to charity when they passed, Dick in 1990 and Claude in 2000.
Another killer barrel sample from this estate is the 2015 The Ripper (Grenache), which is 100% Grenache that’s aging in a mix of concrete and older demi-muids. Loaded with notions of kirsch, blackberries, crushed pepper and bouquet garni, it has full-bodied richness, beautiful mid-palate density and plenty of structure. It will need short term cellaring but is a sensational Grenache from Paso Robles!
