    Winemaker's Notes:

    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 our most versatile wine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This offers a tasty, full-bodied mix of ripe dry currant, mineral, sage and loamy earth, all compelling and detailed, maintaining a sense of elegance. Intense and complex, with great structure.

    Inky ruby. Explosively perfumed bouquet of black raspberry, strawberry preserves, candied violet and white pepper. Supple and seemingly tannin-free, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and Asian spices. Fresh and juicy on the finish, with the red fruit notes repeating. Deftly blends power and finesse; and drinking very well right now. 'From the ripest barrels,' Jensen noted.

    The 2006 Vertigo also performed even better this year. A blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache, it possesses an inky/purple color, blackberry, pen ink, smoke, and floral characteristics, peppery, spicy, underbrush-like flavors, and a full-bodied, supple, more accessible style than the Alchemist.
