Petite Sirah is a dark and brooding grape varietal. The texture and tannins come directly from the skins of larger berries from the rich soils of the Lodi and Central regions of California. This is very important because the tannin profile is reduced while the dark, luscious, and juicy fruit remains the signature of the wine.
After fermentation Spellbound Petite Sirah is moved into small French and American oak barrels to develop the wonderful flavors of rich caramel, vanilla bean, and roasting coffee aromatics. Everything about making Petite Sirah rocks; vibrant color, unbridled berry character and plenty of texture creating the perfect balance and one of the most exciting wines that will leave you Spellbound.
