Vertigo aims to be a traditional Rhone blend, a "G-S-M". We ferment a portion of this wine whole cluster and use stem inclusion to add a bit to its character in terms of tannin and spice. We named this wine 'Vertigo' in jest for one of Booker's steepest hillsides that grows Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre.

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. It’s one of the finest GSM blends out there and will shine for at least 8-10 years.
