THE WINE:
Gabrielle searched for a personal daily wine to enjoy by the glass or with meals that was approachable in taste & price- yet intriguingly satisfying. She could not find it, so she made it! Multiple blind tasting by a panel of fellow wine lovers put Vertex in first place over other wines every time-it has become a favorite of many ever since.

Vertex signifies various elements merging to a single point, as do the varietals Gabrielle blended.  The artistic brush strokes merging to a single point on the logo captures that symbolically. She was inspired by classic Meritage wines but reached back in history when Bordeaux wines included Syrah. THAT was the secret- Cabernet‘s structure & and with Syrah’s fruitiness create a supple, lively wine that evolves in the glass.

The combination of vintages create a wine that is smooth and ready to drink but with good aging potential.
