Reviews and Ratings

Campfire smoke on the nose along with ripe black and purple plum aromas wrapped in lots of toasty oak. Full-bodied and smooth with fleshy sweet blackberries on the palate and finish. Pair with grilled meats. MINE: Michael David's Petite Petit is a full-bodied and dry red wine blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot. Nothing small-bodied on this wine. This is a big and juicy, robust and full-bodied red wine with spicy, jammy blueberry and blackberry flavours on the palate. Pair with a grilled rib eye steak. OTHER: Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: Hedonistic-ally (is that a word?) dark in the glass. Nose suggests a sweet core of berries which is delivered on the palate with sweet blackberry jam. Finishes with a touch of oak and spice. OTHER: Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review: I tried this red blend at the California Wine Fair in Montreal April 23, 2019. The beautiful original label was what first attracted me to try this wine. It blends in 15% Petit Verdot with 85% Petite Sirah. I enjoyed the aromas and flavours of dark fruits and oaky after taste. I would pair it with grilled chicken. OTHER: This admittedly huge wine offers tamed tannins, with a generous dose of spicy oak and a hint of sweetness that seem to absorb some of the astringency. It comes off as very concentrated and flavorful, showing an almost velvety texture. Editors' Choice. Score - 90 (Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast, Dec. 1, 2018). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
