Three Litre Bottle of 2008 Bogle Phantom
A wine of complex character that appears briefly for sale once a year, quickly vanishing before the next vintage release. This 3L, also known as a jeraboam, is extremely rare and it is the first vintage of large format Phantom brought to Massachusetts. Vivid essence of black pepper, dark fruit, and juniper haunts the nose, while brighter flavors of blackberries and blueberries glance off the palate. From the shadows, toasty cinnamon and nutmeg emerge, subtly embracing the deeply luscious and succulent fruit to create a full-bodied, ruby rich wine.
Value: $125 Donated by: Aimee and Scott '92 Cronin
