Lot #440. Booker Vineyard Proprietary Red Vertigo 2016

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 99 JD.
"I suspect the finest vintage to date, the 2016 Vertigo is a rock star effort and one of the top wines to ever come out of Paso Robles. Just loaded with notions of blueberries, incense, ground pepper, and crushed flowers, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a multi-dimensional, layered texture, no hard edges, and incredible purity of fruit. A blend of 52% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 18% Mourvèdre brought up in 50% new French oak, it’s a monumental wine from Paso Robles to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years. Eric Jensen’s Booker Vineyards continues to make a ripe, sexy, pedal-to-the-metal syle of wine and these latest 2016s don’t disappoint." Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com, Nov 2018
Provenance: The Normande Cellar
Notes: Very lightly scuffed wax capsules.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $475
