SPELLwine Severed Head and Spellonu Red

californian wine  %tages SPELLwine Severed Head and Spellonu RedTonight it’s time for a double-header review from one of my favorite new small winery discoveries, SPELLwine.  Both wines are red blends from Napa Valley, both are super tasty and both have crazy-fun marks.
The woman in the rear this wine, Kristen Spelletich, told me that she only sells her wine through retail and direct.  She said that restaurant buyers have told her that “they can’t have a bottle that looks like that sitting on the table.”  Really?  I reckon she’s talking to the incorrect restaurants.  I’d like to dine at a place that’s un-stuffy enough to place these on the wine list.  I mean, how fun would it be to have a fancy dinner with a bottle called Severed Head Red on the table?
Seriously, I reckon the marks are bright and eye-catching but their not offensive.  Would you be turned off seeing this sitting on your table at a restaurant?
Regardless of the design, the juice that’s in these http://1000-facts-about-wine.com wines is superb.  Both are from the 2006 vintage too, so you get a wine that has a few years of maturity to it and is tasty now, but they both certainly have a number of years left in them if you want to tuck a bottle away for a while.

SPELLwine Severed Head Red
This one is a blend of 76% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot and 14% syrah.  Wowee does this show a lot of spice on the nose.  It offers nutmeg, allspice and cedar aromas with intensity that’s intense!  There is also plenty of blackberry and cherry mixed in with that.  There’s nothing subtle about the palate either.  It has huge, concentrated flavors like blackberry, cherry and plum.  And while it’s huge, and aggressive, it’s not jammy or offensive.  It’s harmonious and tasty.  I say, well done!
