92pointsCloudlift Cellars 2017 Stratus Petit Verdot (Yakima Valley)

Editors' Choice

Cloudlift has always excelled with this variety, and the 2017 vintage continues that trend. The Petit Verdot is blended with 10% Merlot, and the aromas are forward, with notes of plum, cherry, coffee, dried herbs and cocoa. The palate is packed to the brim with ripe blue and purple fruit flavors. A lovely sense of acidity and tannin structure stitches it all together. Coffee notes linger on the finish. Sean P. Sullivan
