Bogle Essential Red

P1040296

In keeping with drinking on a budget, we tend to save our better, and usually pricier wines, for the weekends. Our weekday wines are of the “best bang for the buck” value variety. Bogle Essential Red is the newcomer to our weekday wine collection. This red blend is comprised of Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petite Sirah.

The dark ruby-red blend hums with scents of juicy plum and blackberries. On the palate, the spiciness of the old-vine Zinfandel is dominant with hints of black tea and anise. The mouthfeel is velvety and full-bodied. The respectable finish suggests vanilla and pepper and closes with tangy fruit.

All in all, Bogle Essential Red is very satisfying for $11 on a Wednesday night.
