The Michael David Winery Petite Petit, a full-bodied hedonistic pleasure from Costco. BULK BUY!
From the bottle:
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.
Walking through my Costco the other day I was delighted to spot today’s wine. (And with they eye-catching label it’s hard to miss.) A favorite of ours from way back, it’s been a whopping five vintages since we’ve re-visited it here at the site, which is way too long. We were very happy to find that this unusual blend is even better than we remember it!
The 2015 Michael David Winery Petite Petit pours thick, dark, inky goodness in the glass. It smells of blackberry, black cherry, plum, licorice, vanilla 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, smoke and the list goes on. And while it’s loaded to the brim with big flavors it also manages to keep its balance, much like an elephant walking a tightrope. The whole thing resolves nicely 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!
