Teeth staining purple. Big, bold and grapey. I paired this with a medium-well filet mignon right off the grill and it packed quite the punch. Huge alcohol level. this wine is just a lot of wine with friends.

Opaque ruby-purple hue, aromas of dried black fruits and artichoke; rustic flavor notes of cough syrup black fruit, graphite and earth-veggie, underscored by fine tannins to a modest finish across the lean palate.

This was the softest Petite I've had. Still had the distinctive blue and dark berries you'd expect in a Petite. While most petite is very bold and brutish, this petite was balanced and relaxed. Would recommend giving this a try.

Very in your face jammy, full bodied and fruity, would do well to sit and open up awhile before drinking

Almost black in color, this is a blend of 85% Petite Sirah, 15% Petit Verdot with a pronounced smell and taste of smoked bacon, even smoked gouda, a huge-in-the-mouth wine thatandrsquo;s got nothing petite (or petit) about it. Its lingering tannic smokiness begs for barbecue, smoked trout or such. The label is awesome.

Intensely powerful and heavy-handed with the blackberries and black raspberries. This is a fruit bomb, but it's a delicious fruit bomb! Any Robert Parker fans can surely appreciate the boldness of this 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot. Not for the faint of heart - don't even think about trying to pair this with anything lighter than smoky barbecue ribs! This wine is a guilty pleasure - instantly enjoyable not only for Petite Sirah drinkers, but also for fans of California Zin and Australian Shiraz.

Cinnamon toast, campfire and bacon fat aromatics lead into juicy wild berry flavors, with accessible tannins. Fun and easy to drink, with distinctive notes. Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2017.

The 2005 Petite Petit, which is made from Petite Sirah, reveals beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit, notions of graphite, spring flowers, and earth presented in a medium to full-bodied, richly fruity style with no hard edges. It is atypically soft and supple for a Petite Sirah.

This winery continues to show a very strong hand with Petite Sirah, and their 2007 Petite Petit (which also includes 15% Petit Verdot) has a dark ruby/purple color, and a round, generous personality. With silky tannins, lots of blackberry and earthy fruit, as well as hints of graphite and incense, it is a beauty, and obviously very civilized and accessible for Petite Sirah.

The 2008 Petite Petit is 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 flavors that coat the palate. It reveals remarkable richness for a wine of this price. Wines at this price point can be insipid, vegetal, and washed out, but this 2008 is the antithesis of that style. Enjoy it over the next 5-6 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Aged 16 months in new French Oak, our carnivalistic blend of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot is definitely the star of the show. Trunk fulls of blueberry, plum, violet, and chalky tannins give a seamless finish to this jumbo size offering.
