Bogle Phantom Red

Bogle Phantom Red, 2011

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by not bad, but not great value not a bad wine, but I am not sure that it is that much better than their Essential Red to justify the price April 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 2010 vintage Deep color. Medium intensity nose; fruity, spicy, with nice oaky characteristics. This wine seems a little closed in, but it has not opened up much after an hour of air. In the mouth it has nice body and shows firm tannins - it goes well with food, but perhaps it is not a good sipper. Tannins linger in the finish. A nice wine, but I wonder if further aging would smooth out the tannins. A word about how I use these five star ratings - I recognize that people have wildly different tastes, and I recognize that there are many different styles of winemaking for each variety of grape. I also recognize that most bottles of wine have been well crafted. That said, it is unlikely that we will encounter a truly bad bottle of bad wine, but it is inevitable that we will encounter wines that are not to our taste. Just because I don't like a wine does not mean it is a bad wine - it will appeal to someone. When I give a wine five stars, it means that I liked it, it met my expectations, and I will buy it again. If a wine does not meet my expectations, yet seems to be well made, I will probably give it three stars, and explain why the wine was not as I expected. I will also leave a comment so that you might determine if the wine will appeal to your taste. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Phantom girl I really enjoyed this wine and actually given a bottle away. A friend has requested that I order three bottles just from my recommendations "I hope she enjoys" February 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rich flavor If you like Merlots and Cabernets, this is like a step beyond, with a deep, rich flavor to savor. January 23, 2014

1-5 of 5

California- Three distinctive varietals combine lush berry and fierce spice into a wine haracterized 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.
