    Winemaker's Notes:

    A true Rhone blend, the Vertigo, has an exquisite palate of red fruit and supple texture. This wine is layered with velvety tannins that carry through to a deliciously long finish. Year to year, this is always Booker Vineyard's most versatile wine. The Vertigo was aged with 70% new French oak. It was blended after 6 months and then spent an additional 10 months learning how to get along. This will be ready to drink in six months.

    Blend: 48% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 17% Mourvedre

    Critical Acclaim:

    35% Syrah, 17% Mourvedre, and 48% Grenache. This is firm and austere. Full and racy. Long and exciting. Needs a year or two of bottle age.

    James Suckling

    The 2009 Vertigo is another impeccable wine graced with exquisite silky red fruit, flowers and spices, all of which meld together seamlessly in this round, harmonious wine. The balance, length and elegance on the palate are first class from start to finish. In 2009 the blend is 48% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 17% Mourvedre, aged in 60% new French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep ruby. Sexy, palate-coating raspberry and blackberry flavors are complicated by Asian spices, smoke and cola. Broad, silky and alluringly sweet, with striking intensity to its deep red and dark fruit and candied rose flavors. Shows outstanding energy and focus on the long, seamless, resoundingly spicy finish.
