Definitely one of the smoothest and most deeply concentrated Petit Verdots to come out of the Pacific Northwest, this Walla Walla winery and vineyard sources these grapes from their McClellan Estate vineyard. It's is pure varietal, silky and packed with rich boysenberry and blueberry fruit flavor. The tannin management is exceptional, and the finish brings in details of coffee, earth and licorice.
