VinoUS Media Review
Rated 92+
Bright ruby-red. Inky blackberry, licorice and menthol on the slightly port-like nose. Dense, sweet and surprisingly supple on the palate but still with a touch of inkiness to its broad blackcurrant, blackberry, licorice and graphite flavors. An element of peppery vinosity contributes to the impression of firmness, as do the tight tannins. This very long, savory wine is still a bit folded in on itself and will require patience. Interestingly, Leighton keeps this wine on its skin for "only" 35 days, which is actually less than many of his other red wines under the B. Leighton, K Vintners and Wines of Substance labels. He also destems this fruit. Drinking Window 2024-2032. (By Stephen Tanzer on October 2020)

Wine Tasting Notes
B. Leighton Olsen Brothers Vineyard Yakima Valley Petit Verdot is black purple, dark and broody. Wet earth, violets, burnt anise, wild blackberries and black Indian ink make this wine a beautifully complex head turner to ponder over or enjoy without thoughts but with friends.
