Product Description

The 2016 Madden Big Petite is redolent of dark fruit and dark forests: you get a mulchy forest floor strewn with pine needles, but also a heaping handful of blackcurrants, dates, and vanilla beans in their husk. Upon first opening, the earth aromas subdue the fruit. This balance tips on the tongue, where boysenberry and black cherry abound, and the earthiness steps back. With decanting and time, suggestions of caramel custard and blueberry compote emerge. This wine’s grippy tannins, rigid acidity and full body befit the name of “Big Petite.”

Tasting Notes
Blackberry, boysenberry, ripe plum fruit flavors with exciting bright, aromatics of these fruits. Rich mid palate flavors and finish that lingers long after wine has been tasted. Very exciting Petite Sirah and nothing is "petite" about it.

Super big and juicy with lots of dark fruit. I have a friend that makes awesome blackberry pie and we love to pair it with this wine.
