2008 Mark Ryan Winery Petit Verdot Columbia Valley

I got a little taste of this wine tonight, available through the wine club only apparently. Purple black in color, serious intensity. On the nose, youthful, medium+ intensity, plum, fig, violets, tar, with moderate oak and no earth to speak to. On the palate, dry, medium intensity, medium tannin, and medium acidity, this wine had an explosion of fruit and spice, with good length to the finish, and had intriguing characteristics other than common.
