Robert Parker 90
"The outstanding 2012 Petite Sirah is a 21,500-case cuvée of 100% Petite Sirah that was aged in a combination of 60% French oak and 40% stainless steel. While surprisingly soft and civilized for a Petite Sirah, it does not lack for flavor authority or density. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by notes of blueberries, blackberries, incense and camphor. Meaty, rich and spicy with a hint of road tar, the sweetness of the tannins and the lushness and opulence of the wine are amazing. This tastes like a $30-$40 Petite Sirah, but it's available at less than half that price."

Spellbound was born of Rob Mondavi Jr.'s desire to craft every day approachable wines from California that are relaxed enough to enjoy every day, yet special enough to celebrate milestone events.
Winemaker Rob Mondavi Jr. and partners, honor California's heritage through Spellbound's focus on one of the first varietals grown in the state, Petite Sirah.

Crafted from grapes from established and emerging regions in California, such as Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Russian River Valley, Santa Barbara and Lodi, the core Spellbound lineup includes the Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay.
Because Spellbound wines pair so well with food, they've become a favorite choice for fine and casual restaurants, from neighborhood venues to popular destinations, such as Hyatt Hotels, Macaroni Grill, PF Chang's, Flemings Prime Rib, and Ritz-Carlton Hotels. The unique, eye-catching moon label and delicious, approachable wines have also assured Spellbound's success in off-premise channels.
