Winemaker’s Notes: Phantom Chardonnay entices with its rich layers. Green apple and pear transform into spicy flavors of freshly baked apple pie, while barrel fermentation imparts a creamy, luscious mouthfeel. French oak whispers sweet notes of vanilla and melted caramel.

Winemaker’s Notes: Phantom, Bogle’s mysterious apparition of ripe berry and relentless spice, returns to haunt wine lovers. Full of concentration and intensity, this wine will tease, tantalize and linger long after the last sip is gone. Wild berries and black pepper are framed by the influence of oak aging with baking spices and a hint of toasty vanilla. 42% Petite Sirah, 34% Zinfandel, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot
90 Points Wine Enthusiast: This is not your average red blend, because it has outstanding concentration, multiple layers of dark-fruit flavors and cedary, spicy nuances as well as a richly tannic texture. It will pair well with a grilled lamb chop, and should improve with a little age.
