2017 B. Leighton "Gratitude" Yakima Valley Red Blend

SKU #1474460 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A cuvée made for winemaker Brennen Leighton's wife and a field blend of 70% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, and 5% Syrah, the 2017 Gratitude ranks with the finest Mourvèdres to come from the state. Awesome notes of black raspberry liqueur, incense, ground pepper, and forest floor give way to a medium to full-bodied, ripe, powerful yet weightless 2017 that does everything right. It’s already just about impossible to resist, yet my money is on it evolving for a solid decade. Brennon Leighton is one of the pillars behind the incredible quality coming from the K Vintners lineup, yet he also makes a tiny amount of wine under his own B. Leighton label. These are singular, incredibly impressive wines which are unfortunately made in just tiny quantities. Trust me, they’re well worth the effort to track down! Inner quote mark (4/2020)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes:" "Hallelujah! Here we go again. Beautiful, luscious and alive. Gratitude opens up to blackberry, violet and mint, yet reaches back and flows with complex notes of lemon thyme, orange zest, morels and marjoram. Rich, yet elegant and lovely to drink. It finishes with crushed rock, white pepper and baking spices. Another wine to be thankful for. 70% Mourvédre, 25% Grenache, 5% Syrah / 100% whole cluster fermentation / Native yeast / 35 days on skins / 100% neutral French oak puncheons / 18 mo. barrel-aged on lees."
