Bogle Phantom 2007 Wine Review (NW)



Tasting notes:

Fragrant nose of black cherry cream and licorice

Full bodied and spicy on the palate

Long finish of black cherry and blackberry with notes of pepper, cinnamon, and vanilla

Summary:

Bogle is always a big wine, and the 2007 is particularly spicy. It's a blend of Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and Mourvedre. I like it with rich food and to sip on after a meal. For $20 or so, it's a reliable wine. Look for it either in the Zinfandel section or wherever red blends are displayed in your wine shop. Raise a glass!

Phantom hits my two red soft spots--zinfandel and petite sirah. This is always a solid wine, one worth getting 2-3 bottles to drink over the winter on snow days with a hearty stew or chili. Or, sip it on its own! Glad you liked it as well.

BTW, the Bogle petite sirah basic bottling (~$9-$11 retail) is a reliable value wine for everyday drinking.
