Bogle Vineyards Petite Sirah California 2004
TECHNICAL DATA: WINE pH: 3.71 WINE ACIDITY: .62gr/100ml ALCOHOL: 13.5% SERVED BEST WITH: Try this unique wine with rich meat dishes of lamb, pork or game and their hearty sauces. First produced in 1978 by the Bogle family, this 2004 Petite Sirah is considered Bogle’s “heritage” varietal. On the nose, luscious boysenberry teases you along with touches of black pepper and herbs. Trademark inky and jammy tones fill the mouth with ripe fruit and berries. The voluptuous finish lingers with toasty oak and lush fruit. The firm tannins make this a wine that can develop for years to come, but you won’t want to wait that long to enjoy it! Try this unique wine with rich meat dishes of lamb, pork or game and their hearty sauces.

Bogle's Petite Sirah is a good wine at a good price. Starting sweet with berries and then teases you with oak and pepper, it is smooth, with a sweet and velvety finish. Don't let my neutral rating fool you (perhaps it deserves a but more), this is a nice wine, and I particularlly enjoyed it with grilled lamb chops and polenta.
