A fun, but youthful, Chablis; expect this bottle to show better in 2021-22+. — 14 days ago
This gypsy is fruity and a little peppery, like Pippi Longstocking. Old vine young wine. — 7 days ago
Wine #4 of the night. The winner of the night! Fresh, young and juicy. The 15.7 alcohol was completely hidden behind plump, juicy fruits, soft oak and spice and superbly supple tannins. These wines age beautifully but the purity of a younger vintage is truly awesome. — 12 days ago
One of our favorite Bogle wines, really bold and flavorful - I always want to open first when we have one in the rack! — 3 days ago
Pre-turkey VHR cab sets the bar for the upcoming meal. Black Cherry, a little raspberry, mixed with leather and faint taste of toasted oak. @Bruce Phillips never disappoints. Happy Thanksgiving, all! We have many things to be thankful for— I am thankful for all of you. Enjoy the day! — 8 days ago
Deep ruby hue. Aromas and flavors of oak, plum, raspberry jam, and strawberry. Medium body, with medium tannins and medium acidity. A fresh and inviting nose, a velvety palate, and a medium-length finish. Very flavorful and approachable. — 17 days ago
I found two bottles of this vintage tucked away in the cellar. I opened one shortly after that and was very pleased with my discovery. Richer than most wines from this producer but not flabby by any means. Notes of citrus, a touch of honey and a very pleasant depth and richness. So glad I have one more bottle to enjoy! — 7 days ago
Raspberry, blackberry and some menthol/eucalyptus. Nice initial mouthfeel, but the intensity fades pretty fast. Still, a pretty good wine. Really like aussie Grenache — 10 days ago
