2007 Michael-David Vineyards Petite Petit

This is the latest installation from Micheal-David Vineyards, who proudly make the popular Seven Deadly Zins. In my opinion, this is by far the best wine I have had from them. This wine is properly named since it is a blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petite Verdot, and with the way U.S. wine laws are you would usually see this style blend just labeled 'Petite Sirah' since there is more than 75% of Petite Sirah in the blend. When you pour it into your glass you first notice the deep purple color that leads to nose full of plums, violets and baking spices. The palate is big and bold with flavors of plum, blackberry and currant that almost slap you in the face. The wine is aged for 14 months in French oak which adds a slight vanilla flavor in the already smooth and everlasting finish.
$23/750ml
