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!
Named after two orphan brothers who were raised in Paso Robles, Claud and Dick Booker, Booker Vineyards aims to replicate the prominence that these brothers made on the region with their own wines. The Booker brothers helped to develop the region, working as farmers and assisting with manual labor, as well as being massive philanthropists for the region. One-hundred acres of the Booker brothers land was purchased by Lisa and Eric Jensen in 2001 in hopes to grow truly amazing fruit. They did in fact grow amazing fruit, and by 2005 they released their own label. The wines are mostly Rhone varieties, and are bold, ripe, and cleverly named, following the trend of most of Paso Robles.
