AMAZING JUICE FROM THIS UP AND COMING SUPERSTAR!!...THE HIGHEST QUALITY!!

"Boldly expressive aromas of blackberry and dried cherry lead to densely structured river stone, dried sage and white pepper flavors that build tension toward broad-shouldered tannins. Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache. Best from 2021 through 2026. -T.F." (WS)

"Lastly, the 2017 Vertigo checks in as 63% Syrah, 30% Mourvèdre, 4% Grenache, and the balance Petite Sirah that’s still aging in 65% new French oak. One of the more voluptuous, sexy 2017s from Jenson, it boasts loads of black and blue fruits, ground pepper, and spring flower aromas and flavors. Deep, full-bodied, ultra-pure, and with a big finish, it’s killer wine in the making." (JD)

Winery Notes:
Vertigo aims to be a traditional Rhone blend, a “G-S-M”. We ferment a portion of this wine whole cluster and use stem inclusion to add a bit to its character in terms of tannin and spice. We named this wine ‘Vertigo’ in jest for one of Booker's steepest hillsides that grows Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre.
