Sept: always a great month-wedding anniversary, humidity gone, and Bogle releases Phantom. The 04 was served at my wedding. This wine still never fails to impress. Consistently punching above its weight, the newest iteration ('12) is nuanced, toasty and complicated. Lots of smoky tannins take over after a nose that is a healthy mix of floral notes and crushed stone. Tart, jammy, but never in your face dark berry flavors gently coat the tongue. Finish is clean and fruit forward. Buy now. Drink over 7 years. 16 bucks at trader Joe's. In my experience, the wine is gone within a month or less on release.

Fruit forward and bold. I enjoyed it with Trader Joes "Unexpected" cheese. Nice compliment to each other.

A blend of 39% Zin, 38% Petite Sirah and 23% Cabernet Sauvignon with grapes sourced from Lodi, Clarksburg and Amador. Juicy black fruit mixed with spices. Good acidity and enough (supple) tannic bite to keep it interesting. A bit expensive for what it is.

This was alright but not as bold as I was hoping it would be.

Great red blend, definitely taste the berries. Clean finish, not dry at all.

Peppery but also smoky vanilla spice? Would be great with some cheese and a nice acidic salad.
