Booker Vineyard 2016 Ripper Grenache
Most consider the Ripper to be the most elegant wine Booker Vineyard produces with its delicate red fruits and hints of cherry cola. They partially age the wine in neutral French 500L oak barrels, and the other parts of the wine in concrete tanks. The Ripper is only made in select years when the Grenache crop shows top-quality.
