Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2011 Petite Petit (a 45,000-case blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot) was aged 12 months in American oak. 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. Thankfully, it keeps the Petite Sirah relatively civilized. Drink it now or cellar it for 5-7 years (Petite Sirah can sometimes last for decades). (Aug 2013)
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.
