(From 2013 Vintage) Dark purple stains the glass, a perfect showcase for the fruits in this intense red wine. Inky and succulent blueberries and blackberries overwhelm the palate, while a touch of roasted, savory and earthy tones round out the mouthfeel. Supple and spicy, this full bodied wine was aged in American oak for 14 months. Toasty vanilla on the finish combines with chalky and chewy tannins to create a finish with structure and character
Bogle’s “heritage” Petite Sirah is known for its concentration and jammy, luscious flavors. The 2013 vintage is no exception. Visually stunning, this opaque and inky wine shows its weight even in first glance at the glass. A bouquet of brambled berries and juniper overwhelms the first impression, leading into volumes of blackberries and blueberry fruits. Full-bodied and ripe, the dark fruits marry well during 10 months of American oak aging and couple with baking spices like vanilla and nutmeg to be reminiscent of Grandma’s blackberry jam. Rich and muscular tannins round out the wine, allowing it to be enjoyed now by many, or cellared for enjoyment to come.
Ok. Decent if you have nothing else to go to. Would drink it again if offered. Would buy it again to accompany a quick meal whenever I see it on sale. Spicy, nothing to write home about.
spicy, yet smooth, low tannins, not buttery, not overly fruity taste of currents, cocoa?
A hint of sweet hickory on the nose. Slightly dry with little flavor. Not very complex.
Full, nice flavor. Stands up well to seasoned meats.
Drank cold. Interesting. Not amazing.
Fresh, zingy, peachy nose. 5*
Less dry. Cherry undertone
Nice light syrah
Easy to drink
