I have always wanted Vertigo to be our GSM blend, but with additional whole clusters to give it more exotic spice and tannins. In 2012 that all came together! Vertigo comes in at 14.6% alcohol with some firm tannins up front, followed by game meat and tobacco. It has a soft and supple mid-palate, while finishing with a generous amount of dark chocolate and cocoa. This wine is ready to consume and will drink best early.
