Edward Sellers 2007 Proprietary Red Blend Vertigo

Edward Sellers 2007 Vertigo is a Grenache-based wine that’s enhanced with the earthy, woodsy characters of Syrah and the smoky nuances of Mourvedre to create a classic Rhone-style blend. The grapes are grown in Paso Robles Templeton Gap corridor, which provides a unique microclimate of sunny, warm days and cool afternoons and evenings with breezes created by the Santa Lucia Coastal Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean. This temperature fluctuation is critical to attain the intense flavors in Edward Sellers’ Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre intended for this proprietary blend. The 2007 Vertigo is a firm, structured wine of exceptional aromatic clarity. The nose shows off complex aromas of cherry, fresh grape, and wild berry characters, while in the mouth the flavors unite with a dense, silky texture that leads into a lingering finish. According to Robert Parker, the 2007 Vertigo displays classic southern Rhone-like notes of kirsch liqueur, licorice, and resiny soil. It is a ripe, medium to full-bodied, layered, seductive wine. Aged in French oak. [+]
