2006 Olsen Estates Petite Verdot

olsen_pv I was extremely impressed with this wine, one of only a few single varietal Petite Verdot’s made in Washington. Insane blue purple color. On the nose, youthful, medium+ intensity, blackberry, blueberry, black raspberry, fruit roll-up character, tar, violets, loaded with spice, some oak, and no earth to speak to. On the palate, dry, medium+ intensity, medium+ body, dark fruit, spice, tar, violets, medium tannin, medium acidity, very well integrated flavors that finish strong. Slightly different set of flavors that should appeal to lots of people, seek this out.
