Michael David Petite Petit 2010
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 substantital, dense, full-bodied, whopper style of wine loaded with pure black fruits and vanilla flavors that coat the palate. It reveals remarkable richness with a finish that is slightly dry and seems to linger.
Rising from the resurgent Lodi Appellation, Michael~David Winery produces some of the finest award-winning varietal wines in California. We are six generations of winegrowers specializing in hand-crafted Rhone varietals as well as Lodi's famous Old Vine Zinfandels. Our tasting room, café and farmer's fresh market are located just 30 minutes south of Sacramento and one hour east of the Bay Area. Enjoy!
Peppery, oaky, minty nose. Satiny as it rolls over the tongue. Fruit flavors seem to tend towards plum more than any berries. Tannin starts at the tip of the tongue and follows the wine back as it passes the edges. Reasonable acid, although I might wish for a tad more. I'm noshing on some provolone right now, and it's pretty good. US$15.59 at Total Wine.
A nice strong dry red filled with tannins. The nose is beautifully balanced and floral but the taste does not hold the same characteristics. The first taste is an intense one, but after the tannins settle and the wine aerates a bit, the boldness settles down and becomes much more balanced. An enjoyable red no doubt, you just have to get past that first sip.
This wine is a bit darker in color, with a bit of opacity at the center, easing toward some ruby at the edges. The nose on this one is quite a bit different, with some distinct woodsy notes reflecting the Petite Sirah (which also lends structure and the fantastic deep purple color), some wonderful fresh herb notes accented by anise and black cherry. The taste of this one is somewhat more fruit forward, reminiscent of the more jammy Lodi zinfandels, with flavors of black cherry and cassis that transition into some flavors of forest floor midpalate. The finish is quite nice with softer tannins leading to a more subdued, dry finish.

Wonderful blend of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, this powerful wine has a strong nose and would benefit from decanting and sitting a while before being consumed. On the nose is an oaky vanilla with notes of blueberry, plum, black and dark fruit. In the mouth it is meaty and peppery with hints leather, tar, and tobacco. Aggressive, chewy tannins.
Powerful and stings the nostrils. Very big and purple and the nose screams of oaky vanilla. Huge oak on this wine! Aromas of blueberry, plum, black and purple fruits. Meaty and roasty with hints of game, tar, maduro tobacco. Big on the palate as well, bold and aggressive. Very dry and woody tannins. Lots of vanilla, blue, black and purple fruit tones. Fleshy with suggestions of cigar box. Not as heavy handed as when I tasted this wine before with better balance than I remember. Not bad, but not my style of wine. 84 pts. 5/1/13
Food Pairings for Michael David Petite Petit
"Another interesting offering with more asphalt, pepper, meaty, leathery characteristics is the big 2012 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." - Robert Parker
