Tasting Notes
Vertigo is our unique blend of Merlot (47%) , Cabernet Franc (24%) and Barbera (29%) . It is fruit forward on the nose with aromas of cassis, blackberry, plum and spice, enhance by a pleasant earthiness on the palate and flavours of chocolate, leather and rhurbard pie. It is a medium bodied wine with a soft velvety texture and a lingering finish.
