It's a blog for winelovers. It's a blog for slackers. It's the lazy drinker's reference for cheap, high value wines. You know, the bargain wines you just don't know if you should take a chance on; maybe in the supermarket or drug store. If you want advice on grand cru, well, everyone knows where to get that: get yourself one of those slick, expensive mags. This is a blog, man; prices and spellings are the best we can do, but, don't hold us to 'em. Photos are under copyright.

Known as a low end, high value winery, Bogle Vineyards, has a great premium wine at a very friendly price; Phantom. Phantom is a tasty red blend in the Rhone tradition of Old Vine Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Old Vine Mourvedre.
Hearty and mouth-filling, my friend Rob told me, "This is my ideal red wine!". It's a wine you're not likely to see at your local supermarket. The Wineslacker found it at Whole Foods and at the well-known Hi Times in Costa Mesa, CA for under $20.
The Wineslacker rates Bogle "Phantom" 2003 at 4 stars out of 5 stars, for value and quality.
