We had a dinner recently and several guests brought the same bottle as the host gift, the above from Bogle Vineyards. We always like trying what friends enjoy. This is an easy drinking red to enjoy with food or just as a glass while reading. I think this is readily available as I have seen bottles for sale in both Seattle and New York. I try my darndest to have these Wine Wednesday wines be available to many of you.
From a little web searching as ‘wine speak’ is not my forte. “Welcoming and easy to drink, this full-bodied wine has mellow, ripe fruit flavors, light oaky accents and a warm sense of ripeness that doesn’t go over the top. Subtle tannins support the texture while keeping it smooth. The blend includes Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. Rich, enticing layers of complexity, starting with that first irresistible sip. Ripe fruit, intense with flavors of boysenberries and sweet cherries. Luscious vanilla, caressing the palate from barrel aging in American and French oak. Juicy and silky throughout, with a finish that lingers of black licorice and spice.”
