Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I love the label - I love the wine. Overtly fruity with berries and more berries on the nose and palate. Softer acids and solid tannins make this a serious cellarworth wine which should gain more complexity over time. You would be rewarded even if you age this 6 months but I'd prefer to drink this between 3-5 years from now.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A fun wine with a funky cool label. Loads of stewed black fruit, dates, tobacco leaf and spice notes dominate Petit-Petit's aromas and flavours. It's smooth, full-bodied and crowd pleasing. Enjoy with bacon wrapped chestnuts. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Purple in colour with aromas of plum, blackberries, violet and toasted oak with bold flavours of plum and blackberry following through. This wine is full bodied with high but well balanced tannins, acidity and alcohol. It will pair well the grilled meats such as steak, ribs or a nice juicy burger.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Boasting ripe plum, ripe blackberry and cocoa with declared 14.5% ABV. Densely concentrated blend of Petite Syrah and Petit Verdot. Wow! I enjoyed the supple full-bodied profile, with medium tannins, medium acidity, giant aromatics. Pairs well with honey garlic or bison sausage, pulled pork nachos, and drinking well on its own. Tasted Jan 2017. Rated 90/100. BespokeTastings.ca
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lots of lush berry notes on this, 85% Petite Sirah with 15% Petit Verdot. Aromas of deep purple plums and a bit of violet. Smoth, soft tannin, and lots of berry on the palate along with a smoky note. Pair with burgers, kebabs, or anything you might throw on the grill. Very nice.
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Step right up! The label of this wine depicts two elephants sitting in easy chairs in a big top circus tent... a funny, yet representative rendition of this bold wine, which greats you with the "plums, plums, plums" feeling of the beat of a drums. This bold wine has is dark purple in colour; a robe which mimics the violet colour of plums, which show up everywhere on the nose, in the mouth, and on the finish. A full bodied wine with rich, almost oily mouthfeel, and a light off-dry finish. It would pair well with juicy BBQ'd meats, especially ribs with sweet sauces. Score 89. (S.Segard, reviewed Jan. 15, 2017.)
