Winemaker Notes

Aromas of baked cherry cobbler and ripe cranberries are front and center. Framed with nutmeg and allspice delivered from aging 2 years in American oak. All wrapped with peppercorn, anise, and juniper berries which are abundant flavors found in the Petite Sirah and Zinfandel varieties. Don't be fooled by the seductive nose. At first sip, the Phantom is generous and mouthfilling. is wine is packed with big color, dark fruit and ample tannins. While the Phantom is perfect today there is enough structure here to age well into the next decade.

Blend: 52% Petite Sirah, 48% Zinfandel

Wine Enthusiast

Rich, layered and smooth, this opulent wine oozes blackberries, milk chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon as soft tannins give it a mouth filling, velvety texture. Best Buy.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Bogle Vineyards Phantom Proprietary Red packs plenty of rewards on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine deftly combines aromas and flavors of black fruit and oak. Enjoy with grilled cheeseburgers. (Tasted; July 27, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Bogle Vineyards, California
Bogle Vineyards Winery Video
Although the Bogle family has been farming since the 1800's, it wasn't until 1968 that the father and son team of Warren and Chris Bogle planted their first 20 acres of wine grapes in Clarksburg, California. Clarksburg is a small farming community nestled in the Sacramento Delta. Today Bogle Vineyards farms over 1,000 acres of wine grapes in the Delta region. While the winery was established ten years after the first grapes were planted, it has grown tremendously along with the vineyards. Bogle Winery is currently producing 100,000 cases of wine. Winemaker Christopher Smith joined the winery in 1992. He sources fruit from some of the best vineyards throughout the State of California and blends that fruit with the best grapes from our Estate Vineyards in Clarksburg.

California

Red Wine

View all products

California is a winemaking colossus; by itself it is the fourth largest producer in the world. Red wine accounts for 56% of the total by volume, and red grapes 63% of total acres planted. In addition, a number of California red wines are heralded as being among the most prestigious and sought-after wines in the world.

While the state’s incredibly diverse geography, soils and microclimates allow for a wide array of styles, the key factor unifying California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season. This leads to well-developed fruit marked both by impressive ripeness and balancing acidity.

The state’s most famous red wine region, of course, is Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king. But California boasts a wealth of other impressive appellations. The much larger and climatically varied Sonoma County also produces world class California Cabernet, along with wonderful examples of California Pinot Noir and Zinfandel.

Fine versions of Cabernet and Zinfandel hail from Paso Robles as well, which is also gaining fame with Rhone varietals like Syrah and Grenache. As for Pinot Noir, terrific examples can be found from AVA’s such as Anderson Valley, Carneros, Santa Lucia Highlands and Sta. Rita Hills. Wineries in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties are making wonderful Syrahs, and the Sierra Foothill appellations are proving to be an experimental hotbed, with Italian and Spanish varietals employed to great effect.

This of course is a mere sketch. The subject of California red wine is as deep and broad as an ocean, and absolutely a joy to explore!
