The full name of this wine is Twenty Acres Cabernet by Bogle.
Yes, you read that correctly. It’s a Bogle wine. But unlike Bogle, you can’t buy it, unless you are a distributor or a restaurant.
Jason (yes, of Red Barn Winery & Tasting Room) surprised with this one. It’s a fruity cabernet with a hint of spice (clove maybe).
Officially, it has a bit of petite sirah in it, according to the website. Regardless it’s a very nice drinkable wine. Great for a Friday night or a date Night.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to go to a specialty wine shop or order online to get this one. So, if you really want to impress seek out the label. If you just want a great wine, Jason suggests just buying Bogle. I’m inclined to agree with him.
I don’t agree with Jason because the price point on the wine is high. It’s not, it’s a Monday/Tuesday price – but for drinking on those days I want something I can grab while grocery shopping. This I’ll pick-up for me if I’m somewhere buying a wine for a gift, but I don’t see myself going out of the way to buy it, despite the great taste.
In fact, Randy (of Randy’s Steakhouse) should pair this with his Tournedos. Or maybe I’ll get them to go and open my own bottle.
P.S. Twenty Acres also makes a chardonnay. It’s on the list to try…
