Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Petite Sirah from Spellbound is a fruit bomb. It opens with a musty straw and cedar bouquet with notes of black cherry and leather. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty cherry-cola with hints of blueberry, strawberry and vanilla oak. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors last for a while. The panel suggested pairing this wine with bratwurst or corned beef and cabbage. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Intensity of color, rich black and brambly fruits, vanilla bean and roasting coffee aromatics are complemented by remarkable approachability in the 2013 Spellbound Petite Sirah. The wine is crafted to unleash dark and luscious characteristics, while managing tannins to deliver an opulent and juicy Petite Sirah. This lush yet easy-drinking wine provides intense berry character, with superb texture you will fine in none other than Spellbound Petite Sirah.
