This is another excellent red from Bogle. Dark in color with a mild red berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some rich dark cherry fruit. The cab sauv is really coming through. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lively acidity, mild tannins and noticeable alcohol. A little breathing or ageing would help this out easily. I would give it a solid 88. Yum
