48 % Syrah, 47% Mourvèdre, 3% Grenache, 2% Viognier
Mourvèdre and Syrah share the lead role in this latest incarnation of Vertigo as seen in the deep and brooding appearance. Just a touch of Viognier (cofermented with Syrah) ensures aromatic complexity with layers of jasmine and ginger snaps floating on a sea of blue and blackberries below. The palate offers deep flavors of plum, mixed berry, and toasted caramel with an exceptionally long, pleasurable finish. In 2019 I made a concerted effort to show more spice through stem inclusion. This is such a fun, beautiful wine that can be paired with food but it's perfectly acceptable to drink alone chilling by the fire.
For fans of Vertigo we would also suggest trying Fracture or Tempranillo!
