Bogle Vineyards Red Blend California Phantom 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The black magic is back...Phantom. It has reappeared! Three distinctive varietals combine lush berry and fierce spice into a wine characterized by its incandescence. Deeply luscious and succulent blackberries ignite this vintage of our rich ruby apparition. Aromas of anise and sweet fig are embraced by touches of black pepper. From the shadowed dark depths, subtle notes of cloves 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. Though this wine is remarkable now, age in the bottle will only integrate the three unique 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. Zinfandel 51% - Petite Sirah 47% - Mourvedre 2%

Although the Bogle family has been farming since the mid-1800's, it was not until 1968 that the father and son team of Warren and Chris Bogle planted their first 20 acres of wine grapes in Clarksburg, California. In this small farming community nestled along the Sacramento River, the Bogle family's years of hard work have developed into an impressive grape growing operation, as well as a nationally acclaimed winery. Today Bogle Vineyards farms over 1,200 acres of wine grapes in the Delta region. While the winery was established ten years after the first grapes were planted, its success has grown tremendously along with the vineyards. The success of Bogle over the years is firmly rooted in one thing: the day-to-day involvement of the Bogle family in the hands-on effort to produce and promote quality wines. Patty Bogle became involved in the early years of the vineyards with her late husband Chris, when they planted fields together in the early 1970's. Patty took over operation of the winery in 1989 and has directed production to new and exciting heights. Patty's daughter Jody also contributes to the family business by being active in customer support, as well as running the wine club and handling all international sales. Patty's son Warren, named after the founder of Bogle Vineyards, is the sixth generation of the Bogle family to farm this fertile Delta region. Like his grandfather and father, Warren understands that in order to produce quality wines, you must first produce quality grapes. This tradition of respect for the land and the vines is crucial to the success of Bogle wines. The production of Bogle wine is influenced by this family tradition as well as the ever-changing trends in the wine industry. Since 1992, Bogle Winery has participated in the California Appellation Program. In this program, winemakers source fruit from some of the best vineyards in the state and blend them with Bogle's Estate Vineyards in Clarksburg, thus assuring that the wines benefit from many of the incredible grape growing regions of California. Each and every Bogle wine created is a unique and exciting blend with true varietal character and an approachable style. With their deep commitment to quality, the Bogle family wouldn't have it any other way. Read less

Reddish-purple in the glass, Wooody, spicy nose. Big, robust on the palate. Very firm. Serious tannin. Really, the kind of red wine that I like a lot. We're having pasta with red sauce, tonight and this will be good, but this wine is meant for grilled beef.

Deep garnet color. Vanilla, black cherry and spice on the nose. Oak monster. Dark fruits and chocolate on the palate. Very smooth with decent tannins and a fairly lengthy finish. Just a tad too much oak for my tastes but overall very good.

Exceptional! Cherries and vanilla on the nose, a palate of cherries, red plums, and persimmon. resinous with a perfect balance of oak and tannins, has a moderately dry finish that is perfect with duck, goose or lamb. This should be a 90 point wine.

Notes of juicy boysenberry and black fruit are deepened with aromas of pipe tobacco and black pepper, while subtle hints of clove and vanilla softly envelop the palate. Intense and luscious, the rich character opens to reveal red fruit flavors.

Rich black raspberries and briary boysenberries vividly surround the nose and palate, while the decadence of cocoa-dusted pomegranate is enticingly complex.

Lots of old vine grapes went into the making of this Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Mourvedre blend. Itrsquo;s intensely fruity and spicy, a clean wine to wash down barbecue and burgers.

Ripe, with vivid pomegranate, wild berry and raspberry-rhubarb flavors that have a spicy floral edge. Ends with a complex aftertaste and firm, integrated tannins. Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2011.

The coveted Phantom, Bogle's apparition of three unique varietals, 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.

A toasty vanilla bean note adds charm to the medium-bodied wild berry and grapey aromatics. Appealing for its focus and smooth ripe fruit flavors. Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2012.
