Bogle Blunder

Happy Hump Day!  I FINALLY remembered my wine for Wednesday. I know, you’re all so excited, right?  Ha. There is wine, but there is still no camera.  So, as soon as I can connect my camera to my computer, I’ll update with a label pic.  Until then, you’ll just have to deal (I’ve spoken one too many “I’m sorry” ‘s already this week, so…I’m being blunt, and I’m not sorry.  But, really, I am :/ ).

Today’s delicious wine:

Bogle Vineyards

Type: Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage: 2009

Dustin and I are big fans of Bogle’s 2007 Merlot and Cabernet.  BIG fans.  So, unable to find a 2007, we opted for the 2009, and a Cabernet rather than a Merlot.  We were not impressed.  The high alcohol content didn’t match the medium/light-bodied feel.  The wine was overly acidic and tasted overwhelmingly of plum.

First thoughts: vinegary and tart. Umm…I think I’ll take another sip.

Lacking mouthfeel.  Light to medium body.  Unexpected, in a not-so-good way.

Final thoughts: Not a great wine.  Next time, I’ll spend the extra on a 2007 if it’s available.  If not, I’ll opt for a different wine.

Keep in mind, this is the 2009 Cabernet, not the Merlot.  I’ve had the ’09 Merlot and have only good memories.  Maybe I dived into that bottle a little too much to remember its true qualities… that’s another wine for another Wednesday.

A sneak peak into next week: A Wonderful White

Be. Excited.

Until then, godetevi il vostro vino!
