2017 Booker "Vertigo" Paso Robles Rhône Blend
Top Pick!
99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2017 Vertigo from barrel, and it didn’t disappoint from bottle. A blend of 63% Syrah, 30% Mourvèdre, and the rest Grenache and Petite Sirah, brought up in 65% new French oak, this full-bodied, massively endowed 2017 has complex notes of blue fruits, blood orange, violets, and exotic spices. As with all Eric’s 2017s, it’s rich and concentrated yet has remarkable purity and elegance at the same time." (10/2019) 96 points Vinous: "Brilliant purple. Blackberry, blueberry, cola, exotic spices, vanilla and pungent flowers ...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The Zinfandel-dominated 2017 Westberg Red (which includes 24% Tempranillo) is another saturated purple-colored effort from winemaker Don Burns that offers an earthy, meaty bouquet of black fruits, plums, Asian spices, flowers incense, and blood orange. It's ripe, sexy, rounded, and just a beautiful drink. I’d be thrilled to have bottles in the cellar." (10/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 76% Zinfandel and 24% Tempranillo aged 22 months in 60% new oak, the medium ruby-purple colored 2017 Westberg Red is...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Claude's Cuvée is an interesting blend of 52% Syrah, 22% Grenache, 10% Mataro, 8% Tempranillo, and 8% Carignan that was raised mostly in French oak. It offers a more earthy, meaty bouquet of spiced black fruits, cedarwood, leafy herbs, and herbed meat. Beautifully textured and full-bodied, it offers ripe, polished tannins and a great, great finish. It ranks with the best of the best and will cruise for a decade in cool cellars." 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The medium to deep ruby colored 2017 Claude's Cuvée...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The GSM of the estate, the 2015 Veracity checks in as 47% Grenache, 34% Mourvèdre, and 19% Syrah that was brought up in a mix of concrete tanks, neutral barrels, and 24% new barrels. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a kaleidoscope of blackberries, leafy herbs, pepper, underbrush, and spice aromas and flavors, this beauty hits the palate with awesome purity of fruit, building richness, and ultra-fine tannins. It’s a tour de force in Rhône blends from California that I wish every reader could taste." (11/2018) K&L Notes: "Superstar ...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Oublie is a blockbuster, ranking with the finest wines in the vintage. Based on 56% Grenache, 22% Mourvèdre, 22% Syrah, brought up in 50% neutral barrels, its vivid purple color is followed by a full-bodied, powerful, yet elegant red that has a great nose of cassis, blackberries, white flowers, leafy herbs, and hints of pepper. It packs some muscle yet stays flawlessly balanced." (10/2019) 95 points Vinous: "Saturated ruby. Deeply perfumed, spice-tinged aromas of black raspberry, floral oils, smoky minerals and vanilla;...

94-95 points Vinous: "Bright violet. Smoke-accented cherry and blackberry aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied licorice, musky rhubarb and cracked pepper. Chewy and broad on entry and then tighter in the midpalate, offering concentrated dark berry preserve and spicecake flavors and a sweet touch of candied violet. Closes on a recurring floral note, showing impressive persistence and suave, even tannins. (JR)" (09/2018) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Combines structure with polish and substance, offering expressive raspberry, garrigue and smoke...

93-95 points Vinous: "Deep lurid ruby. Ripe red and blue fruit, Moroccan spice and lavender oil aromas are enlivened by a smoky mineral quality as the wine opens up. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering vibrant, mineral-tinged black raspberry, cola and spicecake flavors that show excellent clarity and thrust. The mineral and spice notes drive an impressively persistent finish that's given shape by smooth, slow-building tannins. (JR)" (09/2018) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A plum aroma meshes into cola, rose and hibiscus tones on the nose of this ...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Starting with the 2017s and with what could be considered the entry-level wine from Stephan Asseo’s l’Aventure estate, the 2017 Optimus is based on 49% Syrah, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Petit Verdot that was brought up in 60% new French oak. It reveals a vivid purple color as well as notes blackberries, ground herbs, caramelized meat, and hints of chocolate. Beautifully balanced and full-bodied, it has a seamless, incredibly delicious style and is a brilliant introduction to the wines of this estate." (10/2019)
