Jeb Dunnuck Review
Lastly, the 2017 Vertigo checks in as 63% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre, 4% Grenache, and the balance Petite Sirah that's still aging in 65% new French oak. One of the more voluptuous, sexy 2017s from Jenson, it boasts loads of black and blue fruits, ground pepper, and spring flower aromas and flavors. Deep, full-bodied, ultra-pure, and with a big finish, it's killer wine in the making.
Wine Tasting Notes
Vertigo aims to be a traditional Rhone blend, a "G-S-M". Booker ferments a portion of this wine whole cluster and uses stem inclusion to add a bit to its character in terms of tannin and spice. Booker named this wine 'Vertigo' in jest for one of Booker's steepest hillsides that grows Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre.
