A blend of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, this is a dense, full-bodied style of wine loaded with pure black fruit and vanilla flavours that coat the palate. It reveals remarkable richness.
Petite Petit is a red blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot. For flavour, the wine offers rich, black fruit flavours and spice hints, oak in the background and some meaty notes. For menu partnering, try with barbecued meals, mixed grill or tomato sauced pastas.
Michael and David Phillips represent the fifth generation of growers in Lodi, and things are changing. With 500 acres of premium wine grapes, there is plenty of room for experimentation and innovation.
The vineyards are irrigated by the Mokelumne River, which carries crystal-clear water from the Sierra Nevada Mountains, depositing minerals into the rich soils upon which the grapes thrive. Though not certified organic, Michael~David Winery strives to use all natural methods including integrated pest management, beneficial insects for pest control, trellising, leaf pulling and natural mined sulfur for mildew control. We are six generations of winegrowers specializing in hand-crafted Rhone varietals as well as Lodi's famous Old Vine Zinfandels.
This wine is not at all petite, with its richly layered and concentrated palate. It has an abundance of fine-grained tannins to support its opulent flavors of dark fruits and oaky spices. Full bodied but plush and soothing in texture, it blends in 15% Petit Verdot. Drink through 2022.

Offering a joyous explosion of color and fun, this is a substantial, dense, full-bodied, whopper style of wine loaded with pure black fruit and vanilla flavors that coat the palate. It reveals remarkable richness with a finish that is slightly dry and seems to linger.
