2017 B. Leighton "Olsen Brothers Vineyard" Yakima Valley Petit Verdot

SKU #1544079 92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (12/2020)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A spicy red, showing blackcurrant and walnut character with some new wood. It’s full-to medium-bodied with chewy fruit and a nutty finish. Drink now. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Dark ruby at the core, the 2017 Petit Verdot Olsen Vineyard offers a dusty rigidity with elements of blackberry reduction, spiced plum compote and dark cherry skin with subtle baking spices in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, the wine offers firm tannins that will loosen in time, ending with a tight finish. Give this one more year in bottle or enjoy with food. (AM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)
