The Gerard Petite is a huge, huge wine. "Fruit Bomb", "Dessert in a Glass" Tons of blueberries, raspberries, cherry. Fabulous wine from wine maker Marco DeGuilio. This is one of the true hidden gems out there and at a price point of $21 you should go out of your way to find some of this and drink it. Limited release makes it as rare as hen's teeth but worth the effort. I have eagerly awaited the annual releases since 1999 and they never dissappoint.
