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. "...with more asphalt, pepper, meaty, leathery characteristics is the big 2010 Petite Petit. A blend of 85 % Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot, it reveals some tannins lurking under the surface as well as a more rustic, forceful style. Nevertheless, it is a well made, palate-saturating, value-priced red to drink."
