A compelling blend of California's finest plantings of Old Vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah, this wine surpasses all expectation for pure enjoyment and approachability. Rich, with enticing layers of complexity, starting with the first irresistible sip. Intense flavors of boysenberries and sweet cherries. Luscious vanilla, caressing the palate from barrel aging in American and French oak. Juicy and silky throughout with a finish that lingers of black licorice and spicy pipe tobacco.
"This dry red blend is as sophisticated, Bogle 2012 Essential Red (California). Structured and balanced as many high-end
Cabernets. Made from old-vine Zin, with Syrah, Cabernet and Petite Sirah as well, it has a deep, exotic aroma of dark fruit plus cedar and cardamom. The flavor is richly
fruity, the mouthfeel is firmly textured and the finish lingers nicely. It's medium bodied and full-flavored.
