Spellbound Petite Sirah California 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The purple hue catches you immediately and your eyes begin to taste. Flavors of a freshly baked cherry cobbler along with mocha and coffee aromas jump out of the glass. A broad structure with pinpoint tannins and active acidity make each sip more appealing creating a desire for the next one.

The Spellbound Story “Where are those delicious wines we can drink everyday?” We hear this from our friends all the time, and in fact, we were guilty of saying it ourselves!

The Spellbound Story “Where are those delicious wines we can drink everyday?” We hear this from our friends all the time, and in fact, we were guilty of saying it ourselves! So we set out to create wines that are as comfortable watching the sunset as they are celebrating the milestones of our lives. We also thought a lot about how we would honor the history and heritage of California and its grape growing regions. Our luscious, barrel aged California Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and Old Vine Zinfandel reflect those visions. We hope you sense the same enjoyment and feel that hese are wines that will leave you SPELLBOUND. Read less

Winemaker's Notes: A blend of 76% Petite Sirah, 10% Dornfelder and 14% Proprietary Dry Red Blend.The challenge with Petite Sirah is taming the tannins that naturally exist within the grape due to the berry size and high skin-to-juice ratio. To create a refined and approachable style, we start with Lodi as the focus appellation. Older vines and warmer temperatures ensure grape maturity. Fermenting all of the lots in stainless steel allows us to capture Petite Sirahsintense berry fruit flavors. We also age select lots in stainless steel to maintain the brightness and acidity. These are blended with lots aged in French and American oak, lending undertones of vanilla crme brulewhile softening the tannins and enhancing the structure. All factors combine to create a balanced style that is unmistakably Petite Sirah. Our signature 2007 Petite Sirahoffers rich, approachable, full-bodied flavors and supple tannins. The Lodi appellation fruit, aged in handcrafted, small oak barrels, provides backbone and structure to this lovely wine. Enjoy with friends!
