Like elephants whose size is imposing, Petite Petit is large! A blend of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, offering a joyous explosion of color and fun! It reveals remarkable richness with a finish that is slightly dry and seems to linger. It is a substantial, dense, full-bodied, whopper style of wine loaded with pure black fruit and vanilla flavors that coat the palate
85% Petite Sirah, 15% Petit Verdot. The Phillips family has been farming since Andrew Harshner and his wife Lucille homesteaded 160 acres near the town of Lodi, following the Civil War in the 1860s. Originally devoted to vegetables, the Phillips' farm evolved to include many different fruits, including 15 different wine varietals that were shipped throughout the country during Prohibition with instructions on "how not to have the grapes turn into wine." These days, Michael and David Phillips represent the fifth generation of growers in Lodi with their 650 acres of premium wine grapes.
