Edward Sellers Vineyards and Wines Red Rhone Blend Paso Robles Vertigo 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 Vertigo Vertigo is one of a pair of new blends for 2005. Grenache-dominant, the wine is enhanced with earthy, woodsy Syrah and smoky Mourvèdre to create a European-styled wine with plenty of elegance and refinement. A firm, structured wine of exceptional aromatic clarity, the Vertigo shows off cherry, fresh grape, and wild berry characters in the nose, underscored by the heady scent of forest floor. In the mouth, the flavors unite with a dense and silky texture that leads into a lingering finish. Vertigo Statistics: Blend: 70% Grenache, 17% Mourvèdre & 13% Syrah Appellation: Paso Robles Alcohol: 15.8% T.A.: 5.5 g/L pH: 3.66 R.S.: 0.15% Cooperage: 100% French Oak, 39% New Bottle Date: April 2007 Release Date: November 15th 2007 Production: 598 Cases Accolades:

In 2004, Ed Sellers bought property on the west side of Paso Robles, in the notch in the coastal range known as the Templeton Gap, and founded his small eponymous winery. The focus is on Rhones, both varietally labeled wines and blends like Vertigo. Sellers has planted a vineyard, but the early vintages have been made from purchased grapes. Vertigo, made from grapes sourced from several west side vineyards, is new this year to the Edward Sellers lineup. This is a big, bold wine, a blend of 70 percent Grenache, 17 percent Mourvedre and 13 percent Syrah. It’s not shy about alcohol, either: Vertigo weighs in 15.8 percent. But there’s enough fruit and structure to carry it, so the wine doesn’t taste at all “hot.” Rather, the wine, which sells for $30, displays juicy blueberry and black raspberry flavors; some jammy, smoky notes; nice spice; and firm tannins. It’s aged in French oak barrels, about a third of them new, and the oak adds texture and roundness rather than overt flavors. Sellers’ wines have been produced at Denner, but he’s building a winery along the busy tourist route of Highway 46 West.
