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.
