Winemaker Notes: Bogle winemakers have brought together four distinct varietals to create something memorable and delicious…the 2014 Essential Red. This compelling blend of Old Vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah has created a ripe and mouthfilling wine. Richly textured fruit of dark berries and black plums is nuanced by the flavors of juniper and dried herbs. The juicy, jammy fruit is framed with spicy cedar and hints of pipe tobacco and cocoa as the American oak lingers through the aging of 12 long months. Luscious from start to finish, this wine is easy to drink, but impossible to forget. Share it with your friends tonight.
