Dense ruby/purple in color with aromatic red, black and blue fruits leaping out of the glass. This multi-dimensional wine opens to plump blackberry, blueberry and cherry on the layered palate, added complexity is provided by black licorice, clove, anise, pepper, cinnamon and cocoa with hints of roasted coffee and smoky earthy nuances on the lush extended finish.
From the intense 2010 vintage this Bodog excites the senses with its body and extract that expands graciously on the palate. This shapely beauty is yummy, warm & cuddly.
Named after our great great grandfather who was a freedom fighter, civil rights lawyer and member of parliament in Hungary. Bodog emigrated Hungary to the United States with his family to escape the Monarchists death sentence in 1849. The current Spelletich coat of arms is dedicated to this courageous and independent young man.
Bodog dares to be different, dynamic and purposeful, made to enhance food and to be enjoyed with family and friends. He is a good boy; balanced, polite, sweet, he smells good and responds with unconditional companionship. We love Bodog for his engaging and lovable nature and consistent zest for life.
