2017 Booker "Vertigo" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1443108 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark fI 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. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Brilliant purple. Blackberry, blueberry, cola, exotic spices, vanilla and pungent flowers on the deeply perfumed, mineral-accented nose. Compellingly sweet, lush and broad in the mouth, showing hefty dark berry preserve, candied violet and fruitcake flavors that pick up mocha, vanilla and star anise nuances on the back half. Finishes extremely long and smooth, with velvety tannins, lingering florality and outstanding clarity. 60% new French oak. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Vertigo is a blend of 65% Syrah, 30% Mourvèdre and 5% Grenache aged in 65% new French oak. Deep ruby-purple in color, the nose opens with tar, chargrill and loamy earth scents, slowly offering up game meats, black currants, dried violets and dried black cherries with a chocolatey undercurrent. Full-bodied, rich and slowly blossoming in the mouth, it has a firm, grainy frame and just enough freshness, finishing long and still youthfully coiled. This needs time! (EB) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Boldly expressive aromas of blackberry and dried cherry lead to densely structured river stone, dried sage and white pepper flavors that build tension toward broad-shouldered tannins. Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache. (TF) Inner quote mark (11/2019)
