2016 Underworld Petit Verdot
Tasting notes


Underworld is a dark and brooding wine. Bright and rich, with aromas of violets, vanilla, tar, smoke and pencil shavings the 2016 offers flavor waves of blackberry, black plum, black currant, cedar, tar, dark chocolate, and spices. Little bitty berries from a very steep slope fought hard to deliver this very rare wine. Not many of these babies around (Washington State 100% Petit Verdots). Should age a generation at least.

Food Pairing: Memphis style BBQ or spicy ratatouille.

Movie pairing: Down by Law

FOUNDERS’ NOTES:
Underworld was named for the place that petit verdot holds in a number of our wines. Sorta sits underneath other leading varietals in a beautifully supporting role. Just a tiny bit of adds acidity, color, and flowers. In its 100% varietal bottling, Underworld shows the unique power and intensity of this tiny dark berry. The fruit has come from Olsen Vineyard each year since its inception in 2010.
