2013 Booker "Vertigo" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1216041 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Another wine coming in at the top (past actually) of its barrel rating, the 2013 Vertigo is comprised of 45% Syrah, 29% Mourvedre and 26% Grenache, all of which saw 40-50% new French oak. This full-bodied, concentrated, beautifully pure and sexy GSM blend offers bombastic notes of creme de cassis, vanilla bean, licorice and crushed violets. Already complex and hard to resist, it should evolve nicely for 7-8 years. It is without a doubt the best vintage ever for this wine! (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Vivid purple. Heady scents of red berry liqueur, candied plum and incense, with notes of vanilla and smoky minerals emerging with air. Shows superb clarity to its palate-caressing raspberry and candied lavender flavors. This blend deftly marries richness and vivacity, finishing with solid punch and fine-grained tannins that come in slowly. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2015)
