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


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.
