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 ...

90-92 points Vinous: "Glass-staining ruby. Perfumed aromas of ripe, spice-tinged dark berries and candied flowers pick up an exotic suggestion of apricot as the wine opens up. Silky and energetic in style, offering sappy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a suave touch of Asian spices. Takes a sweet turn on the gently tannic, persistent finish and leaves a note of candied flowers behind.

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 ...

The tannins are firm but polished. *Editors' Choice* (MK)" (12/2019) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "This is the wine we set out to make when we planted the Royal Nonesuch Farm.

It’s deep ruby color is followed by a sweet bouquet of crème de cassis, black raspberries, strawberries, violets, and chocolaty oak. It’s a round, supple, incredibly sexy GSM that has full-bodied richness, loads of power and depth, yet also shows the more charming, forward style of the 2015 vintage in Paso Robles. Drink it anytime over the coming decade." (08/2017) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Comprised of...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The inaugural vintage for the cuvee, the 2013 Fulldraw is made from 48% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 17% Mourvedre that saw roughly 40% new French oak. Coming from the younger vines on the estate, it's a rock-star effort that exhibits lots of black and blue fruits, violets, pepper and saline like minerality on both the nose and palate. Rich, full-bodied, textured and ready to go, drink this beauty over the coming 5-7 years. (JD)" (08/2015) 92 points Vinous: "Vivid purple. Potent, smoke-accented aromas of ripe cherry...

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Hold onto your hats with this one, the 2014 My Favorite Neighbor Proprietary Blend will see 24 months in barrel, and there will only be a single cuvee in 2014. This insanely good barrel sample gives up serious, inky, yet pure notes of violets, licorice, black raspberries, creme de cassis and graphite to go with building tannin, a stacked mid-palate and blockbuster length. I'd like to have a case of it in the cellar. (JD)" (08/2016)

95 points from Robert Parker: "The 2004 Panoplie is a blend of 69% Mourvedre, 21% Grenache, and the rest mostly Syrah with a touch of Counoise. This wine is showing fabulously well out of bottle, with complex earthy, gamey, smoky notes of burning embers and charcoal as well as black cherry and black currant fruit. The wine is broad, full-bodied, powerful, and rich. It is a beautiful homage to the famed luxury cuvee called Jacques Perrin from Chateau Beaucastel. This wine should evolve for at least 12-15 or more years." (Aug. 2007) 94 points from Stephen ...

Aged mostly in large oak puncheons for 20-28 months, it offers up a savory, complex bouquet of kirsch and blackberry-like fruit, meat juice, Provencal herbs, dried licorice, and dusty minerality. Gorgeous on the palate as well, with a deft, elegant texture, building richness, and layers of chewy tannin, this beaut...

Dense, concentrated, and fantastically textured, this full bodied beauty should drink well for 10 to 15 years."

94-96 points Vinous: "A rich, ample wine, the 2012 Panoplie is also a great example of the year. Here the fruit is sweet and textured to the core, yet there is plenty of underlying energy in support. The textured, explosive finish is a thing of beauty. I expect the 2012 to be compelling pretty much upon release. Actually, it already is.

Primarily Mourvedre, it offers up knockout black and red fruits, crushed flowers, roasted meat, licorice and spice to go with a full-bodied, balanced and textured palate that builds in richness and depth as it sat in the glass. As with the straight Esprit de Tablas, it is a savory effort that has superb complexity and big structure. Give it another 2-3 years and enjoy over the ...

This is a big, rich, brooding red that packs serious amounts of fruit and texture without ever going over the top.
