NIce. Dusky and oaky, almost like a white, but with dark, spicy flavors like chocolate and plum. Not as fruity as some that are this big in body. Read more

Deep dark color, very berry with some spice - I smell pepper but lightly. Complex yet a very mellow finish. Read more

This is a fabulous wine at a great price. A blend of Petite Sirah 54% - Zinfandel 43% - Mourvèdre 3%, it's rich and deep with a smooth, mellow finish. Great for drinking around the fire with friends on cold winter nights. I'm going back for a case.

Dark color. Nose with leather, tobacco, cherry. Dark, full-bodied wine, with luscious cherry flavors, oak, vanilla with firm tannins. Would drink with meat or would make a nice winter wine. 89pts

Deep woodsy overtones slowly reveal a complex mix of spice, chocolate and velvety carmel. Great on its own and pairs well with cheese and pasta; but really, why not just drink it on its own!

A very decent drink for the price, but nothing I was enchanted with. I like things that are well-balanced, but it was if it tried too hard to be too many things and lacked an edgier character.

Three unique varietals combine lush berry and fierce spice into a wine characterized by its incandescence. Brighter fruit and brighter spice highlight this vintage of the deep ruby apparition. Aromas of plums and cherries are embraced by touches of black pepper. From the deep dark depths, subtle notes of anise, juniper and vanilla emerge and compliment the concentrated fruit characters of this wine. Captured in 1, 2 and 3 year old American oak barrels, this wine showcases the best these distinct varietals have to offer.

Wine Tasting NotesThe black magic is back...Phantom. Three unique varietals combine lush berry and fierce spice into a full-bodied wine. Intensely fruit forward on the entry, this deep ruby apparition begins with aromas of blueberries, violets and chocolate-covered cherries, dusted with touches of black pepper. From the deep dark depths, subtle notes of spice, clove and mocha emerge and compliment the concentrated fruit characters of this wine. Aging for two years in 1, 2 and 3 year-old American oak barrels has yielded a vexing array of toasty oak aromas to Phantom. Though this wine is remarkable now, age in the bottle will only integrate the three distinct varietals more. Welcome the winery ghost into your home again with this latest vintage, and enjoy with full-flavored and hearty meals...before it vanishes again.

As everyone knows, "bogle" is synonymous with hobgoblin, bogeyman, and bugbear. The Bogle Phantom, despite having a somewhat redundant name, is a tight, focused blend, consisting mainly of Petite Sirah and old-vine Zinfandel, with a touch of Mourvèdre adding mystique.
