2008 Bogle Petite Sirah and some new Trouble In Mind 7"'s

Cracked open a bottle of Bogle Petite Sirah on this fine Red Wine Sunday. Nice leather, vanilla and fruit in this one. Should go well with the mixed grill tonight - Salmon, Chicken Breast and Marinated T- Bone. Got some new vinyl down at Amoeba in Berkeley recently and I've loaded the Juke up with them - Personal and the Pizza's on red swirl vinyl and the Hex Dispeners - both on the great Trouble In Mind label.

Gotta get the grill goin soon, as we will be heading out to a early evening showing of the latest Dreamworks animated feature Megamind. Wish me luck..... Well, at least it's got Will Farrell voicing the villian.


PS - some propoganda from the winery:


Thirty-two years after it was first produced by the Bogle family in 1978, Petite Sirah is today considered Bogle’s “heritage” varietal. Once again the trademark qualities shine through in a wine that is the perfect integration of fruit and oak.
Full-bodied on the entry, aromas of black plum jam and toasty oak set the stage for what is to come. Vibrant boysenberries and luscious fruit are framed by serious tannins, while wisps of leather and vanilla seduce just enough. A final touch of acidity finishes the wine with a precisely balanced mouthfeel.


Try this unique wine with rich meat dishes of lamb, pork or game and their hearty sauces.
