It's back. The blend of black magic from Bogle winemakers. Three unique varietals combine lush berry and fierce spice into a full-bodied wine. Concentrated and intense, this deep ruby apparition begins with ripe cranberry and cherry notes on the nose and palate. From the deep dark depths, notes of spicy cinnamon and sweet vanilla emerge, only to ebb away stubbornly, with hints of pipe tobacco. 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 third vintage, and enjoy with full-flavored and hearty meals before it vanishes again.

I was pleasantly surprised by the complexity of this wine. Starts off with some cocoa and dark cherry, finishes with some smoky spice. Very good quality for the price, I look forward to the next release.
