Bogle Phantom 2013
Enjoy this passionate and commanding red wine, yet another vintage impossible to ignore. Bogle's tantalizing apparition of rich berry and relentless spice returns to tease wine lovers. A spectre of rubies sparkles in the glass, awaiting with its first impression. Full of flavor, concentration, and intensity, this mysterious wine will haunt you well after the last sip is gone. Bright red cherry fruit and black pepper tempt you to take that sip, with hints of brawny juniper, rich blackberry, and briary boysenberry in the background. Succulent in mouthfeel, the wine showcases its versatile grape varietals: Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Mourvedre. Aged for over 24 months in 1- and 2-year-old American oak, tones of spicy vanilla, and toasted coconut moderate the firm tannins and create a focused and intense finish.
