2012 Booker "Vertigo" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1190462 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Vertigo is a blend of 57% Syrah, 32% Mourvedre and 11% Grenache that spent 18 months in French oak. It has fabulous purity to go with notions of sweet red and black berries, crushed flowers, licorice and rose petal on the nose. This flows to a medium to full-bodied, supple and seamless red that has no hard edges, building richness, and a graceful, lightly textured feel that never seems heavy or cumbersome. It will thrill for upward of a decade. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, spices, leather and menthol all meld together in the 2012 Vertigo. This supple, easygoing wine offers good balance and plenty of class, but less of the typical Booker concentration and depth. Sweet floral notes from the Grenache add perfume on the finish. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2014)

K&L Notes

Booker Vineyard is farmed biodynamically. They believe it keeps them in touch with their vineyard and forces them to perceive it as a living, breathing entity. Biodynamic farming follows the beliefs of Rudolf Steiner, who promoted a holistic approach to farming, describing that all things on the farm (including soil, plants, and livestock) are interrelated. Like many, they were skeptical of the concept at first. Eventually they came to realize, if these farming practices are good enough for some of the most discriminating wineries of the world then why not give it a try. Thus far, biodynamics has proven to increase the overall health and balance of their vineyard, as well as their team working within it.
