2008 Spellbound Petite Sirah: Somewhat sweet, creamy, a good buy

nov. 14, 2010: since we had given up on the barbera, we opened up this napa, californian, to pair with our grilled steaks, which was a better match anyway in terms of generalized food pairings. we had tried this at winetree's wine tasting last wednesday, and we both liked it. it was smooth and creamy, slightly sweet, earthy, flavorful and very easy to drink. it had inklings of blackberry, though beyond that, the flavors were hard to pinpoint. 13.5 percent alcohol. about $13. winetree.
