Like elephants whose size is imposing, Petite Petit is large! A blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot.
Offering a joyous explosion of color and fun, it is a substantial, dense, full-bodied, whopper style of wine loaded with pure black fruit and vanilla flavors that coat the palate. It reveals remarkable richness with a finish that is slightly dry and seems to linger.
This is one of those wines that I am always delighted to spot at Costco - and with they eye-catching label (newly updated for the 2016 vintage) it's hard to miss! A favorite of ours from way back, this unusual blend is a perennial favorite, nabbing a Bulk-Buy rating every time that we've reviewed it.
The 2016 Michael David Winery Petite Petit pours thick, dark, inky goodness in the glass. It smells of blackberry, black cherry, plum, licorice, vanilla, cola and more. It's a big aroma but it's just a hint of what's to come when tasting. Taking a sip reveals a big, rich wine full of dense ripe fruit, spice, licorice, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, smoked meat and the list goes on. And while it's loaded to the brim with big flavors it also has amazing balance, much like an elephant walking a tightrope. The whole thing resolves beautifully on the long, dry finish which features lingering smoke and savory spice. Grab a few bottles of this one on your next trip to Costco. BULK BUY!
