Booker Vineyard Jada Vineyard 2015
This Grenache heavy wine is very elegant and pretty, but in no way a light and simple wine. It is red fruits galore, mostly raspberries, but it also has a strong base from the little bit of Syrah that was was added.
Wine AdvocateFrom a hillside vineyard just off of Vineyard Drive road (near Denner) that has lots of clay soils (so more water retention and better canopy development, which is very different from Booker Vineyard), the 2015 Jada Vineyard checks in as a mix of 55% Syrah and 45% Grenache that saw 25% stems and aging all in barrel. Full-bodied, rich, unctuous and downright sexy, with lots of jammy blackberry, cassis, roasted herbs and melted licorice (there are some floral notes hiding in there as well), it's another stacked red from Jensen that readers shouldn't miss.
