Bogle Phantom Red Blend, California, 2015 (750ml)
Enticing and enveloping, this mysterious apparition of ripe berry and relentless spice, returns to tantalize wine lovers. Emerging from the shadows with concentration and intensity, this wine will haunt you with every sip.
Black pepper, juniper and cranberry spark your senses, while a rustic jamminess soothes your soul with its familiarity. Full bodied flavors of black plums and berries bewitch the palate. Touches of cedar boxes and spice surround the finish, as long tannins linger, languish and settle around you like a fog.
Blend: 44% Petite Sirah, 44% Zinfandel, 10% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage 2014 - WE 90 points - Wine Enthusiast
This is not your average red blend, because it has outstanding concentration, multiple layers of dark-fruit flavors and cedary, spicy nuances as well as a richly tannic texture. It will pair well with a grilled lamb chop, and should improve with a little age. Best after 2020.
