Michael David Petite Petit 2006

Area: California, Lodi
Grape: 85% Petit Syrah, 15% Petit Verdot
Alcohol: 14.5%
Rating: Black 90 Dilettante 90

Description: Scents of eucalyptus, black raspberry, strawberry, vanilla and violets. The attack is slick and smooth with a strong California teroir and gobs of fruit. The whole experience is like digging into a bowl of black-cherry vanilla ice cream with a creamy/chalky mouth feel to match. It finishes dry with a nice strawberry lift. Gregarious and friendly, this wine is a pleaser. Decanting 15 minutes releases the florals on the nose.

Price: $16

Note: From the makers of 7 Deadly Zins
