Michael David Petite Petit 2015

Fun label – serious wine.

I had this a couple of years ago. I remembered that it was good. But I kind of forgot how good. Sometimes I think I spend too much time chasing the next great find instead of just being content with great wines I already know. Anybody else feel my pain?

This wine is a beauty. Deep ruby, almost inky with a bright pink rim. The nose is interesting; a lot of unique layers that all come together nicely. Aromas of ripe berries, licorice, sea spray and the faintest hint of mint. The flavors are rich and ripe; blackberry, anise, black cherry and oak. Grippy tannins. A long spicy finish.

It’s a great sipper and I didn’t pair it with anything, but I kept thinking how good it would be with a nice juicy, grilled ribeye. This is a lovely wine. I give it 91 points IMHO. At about $17 for this quality, it’s a steal.
