Wine of the Week
Phantom (Bogle Vineyards)
I have always been a fan of Bogle Vineyards, especially their Cabernet Sauvignon, but their Phantom release has quickly become a new favorite. It is a blend of three unique varietals, Petite Syrah, Zinfandel and Mourvedre... definitely a winning combination!
Surrounded by over 2 ft of snow here in Connecticut this is the perfect wine for a Friday night in front of the fire.
Happy Friday Everyone! Cheers!
Combines lush berry and fierce spice into a wine of complex character. Vivid essence of black pepper, dark fruit and juniper haunts the nose, while brighter flavors of blackberries and blueberries glance off the palate. From the shadows, toasty cinnamon and nutmeg emerge, subtly embracing the deeply luscious and succulent fruit to create a full-bodied, ruby rich wine. Captured in 1, 2 and 3 year old American oak barrels, this wine showcases the best these distinct varietals have to offer. Though the wine is remarkable now, age in the bottle will only integrate the three varietals more.
