Wine Review: This dark red colored Petite Sirah is a Boston Wine Expo discovery that will serve as a perfect winter month value offering. It opens with a mild black cherry bouquet with hints of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry and blueberry blend with hints of gentle minerality and mild oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are a little sticky and linger and last for a little bit. This Petite Sirah is a very food friendly and would pair well with comfort foods like homemade meatloaf. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Bogle's "heritage" Petite Sirah is known for its concentration and jammy, luscious flavors. The 2013 vintage is no exception. Visually stunning, this opaque and inky wine shows its weight even in first glance at the glass. A bouquet of brambled berries and juniper overwhelms the first impression, leading into volumes of blackberries and blueberry fruits. Full-bodied and ripe, the dark fruits marry well during 10 months of American oak aging and couple with baking spices like vanilla and nutmeg to be reminiscent of Grandma’s blackberry jam. Rich and muscular tannins round out the wine, allowing it to be enjoyed now by many, or cellared for enjoyment to come. Served best with smoked lamb shoulder with rosemary or smoked gouda cheese.
