The 2015 Vertigo 22 is the same blend as the classic release (48% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 37% Mourvèdre), yet saw 22 months in barrel. As these extend barrel aging durations tend to do (assuming the raw material can handle it), this cuvée is deeper and richer, with more base notes of blackcurrants, espresso, vanilla bean and cured meats. Just heavenly on the palate, with full-bodied richness, a deep, layered texture, ripe tannin and blockbuster length, it says remarkable light and graceful, yet still packs one hell of a punch with its fruit and intensity. Count me more than a little impressed, and this is the finest version/vintage of this cuvée I’ve tasted.
Comprised of 48% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 17% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Vertigo 22 has a medium garnet-purple color and nose of dark chocolate, black cherries and blueberries with touches of spice cake, dried herbs and violets. Full, rich and decadent with slowly developing black and blue fruits flavors framed by chewy tannins, it has a long finish with a lovely herbal/perfumed lift. Drink 2017-2028. (LPB)
