Petite Petite

I saw this bottle as I was picking up some Secreto Malbec to give away as xmas gifts. My eye of course was drawn to the “petite” word on the label, always a promise of my favorite varietal. It was a tad pricey, around $22. I also found it a bit disappointing to be honest. It is actually a blend of Petite Sirah and Petite Verdot. The latter served to just mellow it far too much for my taste. It is a 2006, made by Michael & David Wines of Lodi.

I imagine many folks would find this wine pleasant, which is why I’m not really going to downgrade it. I also noted that they are not making it anymore, so perhaps the point is moot. I will try their Earthquake Petite Sirah though at some point, as that sounds far more promising.
