The 20th Anniversary ‘BoDog’ Red was named for Tim Spelletich’s great-great grandfather, Bodog Spelletich, a ‘freedom fighter,’ civil rights lawyer and member of parliament in Hungary. Bodog immigrated to the United States with his family to escape the Monarchists’ death sentence in 1849 and the Spelletich Coat of Arms, as seen on the wine’s label, is dedicated to his courageous and independent spirit. The 20th Anniversary ‘BoDog’ Red is a special bottling comprised of individual barrels winemaker Barbara Spelletich had been saving and setting aside for years. The blend of 78% Syrah, 15% Merlot, and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon includes fruit from multiple vintages (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012) and the result is quite a powerful wine. It’s rich, ripe and refreshing with luscious characters of plump cherry and blackberry on the nose. On the palate, this wine is savory with spicy fruit accents of black licorice, clove, anise, and cinnamon. Its earthy finish is soft with a hint of creamy vanilla oak complexity.
