Nov. 03, 2003: BOGLE Petite Sirah California 2001 (87 points, $10)

This excellent value from California is brawny, with blueberry pie, cocoa and blackberry flavors. Chunky tannins and lavish toasty oak carry their intensity through the concentrated finish. Drink now through 2010. 75,000 cases made. Best Values. —James Laube
