Like elephants whose size is imposing, Petite Petit is large! A blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot. Offering a joyous explosion of color and fun, it 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.

MICHAEL DAVID

EARTHQUAKE
2010  Petite Sirah
Over the top and shattering to the veins, all varietals under the
Earthquake label are Michael and David’s reserve level wines.
These wines posses major concentration and daring flavor with
only a limited production offered each year.

The original is the Earthquake Zin that comes from an old Lodi vineyard planted
around the time of San Francisco’s great Earthquake in 1906.
While mulling over a label name in the vineyard, Michael
Phillips thought it only seemed fitting to relate this intense
wine with the historical quake. With over 15% alcohol and
bold tannins, these dark and voluminous wines will definitely
leave your senses quivering.

Big, juicy, in your face, and ultimately a fine, bold wine full
of intense black olive tapenade, chocolate, and tobacco, with
a tannic, peppery finish, a nod to its 19 months spent in
French oak. Unabashedly big, brash and bold efforts aimed at people who love lots of up-front fruit. (Deep dark, plum, black raspberry and cherry). All of those fruit flavors and spices carry through the finish along with bits of chocolate and earth.
