Bogle 2011 Petite Sirah
If you are a red wine newbie, pay attention because this may be your next wine. It is easy on the pocket book and just as easy on the palate.
Delicious blueberries and oak accompanied with a hint of yeast aromas. So gentle on the palate. Definitely should be near the front of your tasting list. Great idea for a conversation sipper before dinner. If you are generally interested in bigger, bolder reds, this may come off as uninteresting or lacking character. Although I didn’t like it much, I see many really enjoying it. I did however pull out my credit card for the Reserve Petite Sirah!

Winemaker Notes: “As our “heritage” varietal, it is important we craft a wine that reflects this unique varietal each and every vintage. The 2011 is no exception!
Showcasing trademark characteristics, the wine is impressively inky, dark and luscious in the glass. Supple fruits, including wild blackberry and Oregon blueberry, are distinct both in the aromatics and on first sip. Concentrated and rich, savory notes of toasty oak combine with mocha and hints of salted caramel. The finish, firm and full bodied, lingers and lasts as only Petite Sirah can.”
