Robert Parker say this about Michael David Wines: "A candidate for the best value winery in the United States, the Michael & David Winery is incredibly proficient at turning out full-flavored wines at bargain basement prices. Shrewd consumers take note."
Wine Advocate Review Rated 91 A brilliant blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot, the 2012 Petite Petit (42,000 cases) sports an adorable label showing two scowling elephants. From winemaker Adam Mettler, this opaque purple-colored 2012 exhibits gorgeous aromas of camphor, blueberries, blackberries, licorice, toast and subtle background smoke. With amazing intensity, it is hard to believe a 42,000-case cuvée could be this good, this complex, this tasty and civilized, and still sell at a remarkable $18 a bottle. Enjoy it over the next 5+ years.
Wine Tasting Notes 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 soft, opaque purple-colored wine exhibits impressive density as well as lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with graphite, licorice and a hint of tar.
