With this 2012 vintage, the big, dark, luscious “heritage” Petite Sirah from Bogle has returned en force!
Petite Sirah is always rich and concentrated, but the 2012 takes these characteristics to a whole new level. Inky and muscular, the fruits of intense blueberry and dark Marionberry hold court in the glass. Leaving room for much else, the full bodied mouthful envelopes the senses, leaving a powerful impression. The wine finishes with brawny tannins, softened only just slightly by notes of freshly baked blueberry pie: warm fruit compotes, vanilla, nutmeg, and the desire for another sip.
Best served with…
Try this unique wine with rich meat dishes of lamb, pork, or game and their hearty sauces.
My least favorite of the Bogle varieties. Inky for sure.
