Bogle Vineyards Red Blend California Phantom 2003
Garnet colored, with a duller brickish hue. Nose is fruity, mostly strawberry and plum, but sharp. The high alcohol content is obvious. On the palate it is soft and buttery, with explosive fruit. Strawberry, prune, and cherry (more bing than dried) are the fruit flavors, with some leather a meat in the finish. It's fairly hot, and finishes a little thin. Overall, very good for the price, and likely to satisfy the oenophile and casual drinker alike.Add winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Smooth, easy to drink wine. Dark plum color, berries, spice, and alcohol aromas (prob. not surprising in a 14.6% alcohol wine!). On the palate this really shines, with rounded black fruits and berries, pepper, and a plush mouth feel. Had with marinated flank steak and mashed potatoes. Would definitely buy more, although it is not a complicated wine by any means.
This is a full-bodied blend that exhibits stone fruits, plum, berries and spices. Since this wine is young, let it sit out overnight without the cork, which will allow it to open up, reducing some of its heat. Pair this with steak or soft cheeses... or just drink it in front of a fire.
A very complex wine with a lot of dark deep fruit. Very heavy full bodied red goes great with a nice medium rare steak.
This wine is one of the best blends I have ever tasted. Bold and a bit fruity with a wonderful aftertaste. It's a shame it is only released every few years! It is available now for 18 dollars which is a steal so grab some while you can
This dark and fruity wine gets better and better with age. It's great now, and will be fabulous later. If you're into a great wine that's reasonably priced, you can never go badly with this option.
