Bogle Vineyards Old Vine 2009 Essential Red Wine, $9.99-$13.99, 90 points is a deep and dark Burgundy red in color, with a broad transparent rim.
The aroma is a wonderful blend of cherry, spice (carries over throughout the tasting experience and is magnified on the finish), and freshly turned earth.
Rich smoky dark boysenberries and black cherry are carried along with good acidity and noticeable tannin which gives structure to this nearly full bodied red wine.
With all the expensive red wines available in New Hampshire, many of which are big bargains even at $30.00, most shoppers I talk to are in the below $10.00 market, well, my friends and family, this is your red wine. I've reviewed some below $10.00 red wines that are good at that price, but Bogle Essential Red, so far, is the best of that category.
Having an interesting blend of Old Vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Syrah, this red wine has so much more finesses than the trendy Apothic red wine that my friend Judy is gaga over, provided that the Old Vine Zinfandel spice with a hint of tobacco on the finish, doesn't overwhelm you.
