Like elephants whose size is imposing, Petite Petit is large! The wine is opaque dark purple and opens with a very inviting violet and plum-like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is quite silky and smooth. It displays very jammy black current-like flavors with notes of dry blackberries and vanilla as well. The finish is dry, and lingers slightly. A boastful blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot. Aged 14 months in French oak.
