Xavier and I have been watching a lot of Supernatural lately. It’s what we do.
To celebrate Friday night I picked up this bottle of Bogle Essential Red. At $14.99, it cost a little bit more than I usually spend but it is immediately evident where that extra $4.00 went.
Essential Red tastes expensive.
A step above what we’re used to.
Whatever they do, they do it well. This wine is fer-damn delicious.
A blend of Old Vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, extra Miracle Gro, and some kind of witchcraft, Essential Red combines the best qualities of all the varietals to create a masterpiece.
Velevet, leather, tobacco, chocolate, cedar, juniper and, you know, grapes.
Actually, it’s just grapes. The other stuff is all in your head.
But damn, it’s fine.
The bottle survived three episodes of Supernatural and a romantic cuddle on the patio.
Whatever wine you were planning to buy for tonight, put it down and go pickup a bottle of Bogle Essential Red instead.
