Bogle 2010 Essential Red Blend
The Essential Red Blend is essentially an old vin zin.. or at least its nose carries that way. It’s well crafted with a big of a “dips-doo” in your mouth. It hits your tongue with spicy vanilla. The spices crescendo in your mouth and then melt away as fast as they appeared. It’s quite the little mouth party.
This darlin would be a great rainy day wine in front of the fire place. Long finish and an excellent value at this price point. I just realized… I didn’t buy one of these. I think I need to cruise back over to Bogle to pick one up for that rainy fall day that should be here soon.

Winemaker’s Notes: “A compelling blend of California’s finest plantings of Old Vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah, this wine surpasses all expectation for pure enjoyment and approachability. Calling on their years of experience and tradition, Bogle winemakers have delivered a wine with…
RICH, enticing layers of complexity, starting with that first
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 spicy pipe tobacco.”
