97 pts - rare                                 
New release from Paso cult producer Booker Vineyards. As always, limited.

97 Points Jeb Dunnuck: 
"Still in barrel, the Cabernet Sauvignon dominated 2016 My Favorite Neighbor offers smokin’ notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil shavings, licorice, smoke tobacco, and hints of violets. With full-bodied r still fresh, chalky, moderately tannic, elegant and lengthy red."

previous vintage 99 points Robert Parker: "Showing the potential of the Bordeaux varieties in these limestone soils on the west side of Paso Robles, the My Favorite Neighbor Proprietary Blend is a smokin' blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Petit Verdot that's aged all in French oak. Locked and loaded, with tons of jammy blackberry fruits, creme de cassis, sweet oak, violets and chalky minerality, this tour de force is full-bodied, incredibly rich and structured. Forget it for 2-3 years and drink over the following 15-20 years...As I've commented in the past,the wines from Eric Jensen at Booker are some of the most impressive releases coming out of California. While in the past, they relied on pure fruit and texture to impress, today they possess layered, elegant and complex characters paired with serious depth, richness and structure."

**The 2016 has 3 different labels representing Booker's Paso Robles 'neighbors': Stephan Asseo of L'Aventure winery, Micaela who works in the vineyard, and Aurelio who farms grapes. The label photography was done by Greg Gorman (of Orin Swift Papillon and GKG fame).
