Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Wine of the Week - 2003 Spellbound Petite Syrah

You will be spellbound when you taste this purple beauty. One hundred percent Petite Syrah mostly from the Lodi area, this wine was aged partly in stainless steel and partly in French oak. The almost purple color catches your eye and you anticipate a big Syrah-like wine, but Petite Syrah is quite a different grape from Syrah. The nose hints of green pepper , black pepper, and blackberries. In the mouth the wine is deliciously fruity, medium-bodied and surprisingly soft. The price is an amazing $15.
