Bogle winemakers have crafted an expressive example of this classic varietal. Richly extracted cherry and cassis arrest the senses, holding captive on both the nose and the palate. Swiftly followed by black pepper and black olive, the supple mouthfeel fills out this full-bodied wine. Spicy American oak heightens the dense fruit, finishing with wisps of ground pepper and stellar tannins.
A bit too dry at first. Probably needs more air.
Oaky, very good for the price. Will buy again.
Very floral. Delightful ending
Pretty good was surprised
