Bogle Merlot 2017
Gorgeous in the glass with rich hues of garnet, the first impressions entice with aromas of sandalwood, vanilla and black cherry. The mouthwatering entry is full of red plums and cherries, while the middle palate of the wine softens with touches of cola and a smooth and silky mouthfeel. Notes of baking spices and mocha are left behind by the 12 months in American oak, leading to a lingering, luxe finish. Pairs well with margherita pizza, aged white cheddar, cheeseburger.
Heavy, smoky, cedary flavors pervade this full-bodied oaky wine. Charred oak and black pepper come across stronger than the modest fruit flavors.
Charry notes accent the ripe berry and dried cherry flavors. Drink now. 470,000 cases made.
