Bogle Phantom 2007 Wine Review (NW)
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
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!
