Hauntingly good and easy to find at Costco, the Bogle Phantom Red Blend is no illusion!
The Bogle Phantom is a blend of 42% Petite Sirah, 34% Zinfandel, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot from California. The wine spends 24 months in 1 and 2 year old American oak and has just 2.8 g/L of residual sugar.
The Bogle Phantom Red Blend has an SRP of $20 but we purchased it for $15 at Costco. This is not a Costco exclusive but you will generally pay $2-$3 more at other retailers. You can check that pricing here.
In the dark recesses of the cellar you sense a presence, hear footsteps. Why is it these things only happen when you are alone? In the shadows, a glimpse of muddy boots and old blue jeans…the lurking legacies of hard work and determination left by those who have come before you.
We are proud to carry on the traditions of our founders with this unique red wine: a deep ruby apparition that personifies the true spirit of Bogle.
There’s nothing mysterious about the big, enticing aroma of the 2014 Bogle Phantom Red Blend! This is a blackberry and spice bomb that also features cola, cedar and more. Tasting the wine reveals lots of jammy dark fruit brimming with spice and vanilla plus secondary notes of licorice, chocolate and black pepper. This is a smooth, full-bodied, tannic beauty. Petite Sirah has long been a favorite underdog variety and this blend puts it to very good use. It ends with a spicy, very long-lasting and extremely satisfying finish. I love this blend!
