Tasting Notes:

Bold and powerful…much like the man for whom the wine is named. The Spelletich family pays homage to a distant grandfather’s honor and heroics during the 1800’s. This exclusive Spelletich Anniversary Bodog wine was just released in February and is only produced once a decade. Only 150 cases are made and they go fast.

When tasting this dynamic, luscious wine, you'll be drawn in by the aromas of dark fruits and spice. Flavors are just as bold and complex with blackberries, black cherry, anise, and bake shop spices.  Savor the long fruity finish as medium tannins linger with vanilla, spice and cigar.

Decant this wine for 1 hour to enjoy all the flavors and nuances it has to offer.

About the grapes:

The wine is named after their great times eight grandfather who was 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. The current Spelletich coat of arms is dedicated to this courageous and independent young man.

"This wine is comprised of individual barrels I have been saving for this blend. Each year of production there are barrel lots that stand out to me as Bodog style. The appellation is 100% Napa Valley. But the vintages are 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 blended together to make this Anniversary Bodog. The blend of Bodog changes every year. Since Bodog Spelletich, our Great Great Grandfather was a Freedom Fighter, I have always stuck to a freedom in blending and rarely duplicating any blend since 1993. This wine has a two beautiful Syrah vineyards, three Merlot vineyards and two Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards. All the lots have been kept separate from each other until I completed my final blend in December 2013. I love wine with many layers of complexity. Anniversary Bodog is the epitome of a long, fruitful and complex existence showing French and Hungarian oak nuances of spice, toast and vanillin. His essence is black fruits with a refreshing raspberry finish."

Food Pairing Suggestions:
With such a multidimensional wine, pairing meats is no problem. Beef, lamb, sausage, grilled meats, roast pork, BBQ and game meats all pair wonderfully with this wine as do dishes with mushrooms or pungent herbs. Also pair hard cheeses like Cheddar, Colby and Parmesan.
