McClellan Estate Vineyard adjoins the famous old blocks of Seven Hills Vineyard. This site at the southern edge of the Walla Walla Valley ripens Petit Verdot to an elegant flavor maturity. This rare 100% varietal offering projects a compelling aroma, mid-palate and finish. The wine is full-bodied and intense with potential for further development. Aromas of rose petal, pie cherry, red plum and an intriguing savory quality dominate the nose. The palate shows rich flavors of herb, black licorice, coffee bean and plum. A balanced tannic structure and lively acidity provide the perfect platform for these flavors and aromas. A very limited release.
The grape's floral component plays against its dense and inky tannins, making this a complete and relatively soft version of pure Petit Verdot. It fills in the usual midpalate hole with juicy fruit and softened tannins. It glides-not a word usually found with this as a varietal-into a silky, fruity, sweetly floral finish.
