This friendly red wine is medium to full in body and shows warm, generous fruit flavors like black cherries and blackberries. It has a smooth texture that keeps it easy to sip. -JG
" This compelling blend of Old Vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah has created a ripe and mouth filling wine. Richly textured fruit of dark berries and black plums is nuanced by the flavors of juniper and dried herbs. The juicy, jammy fruit is framed with spicy cedar and hints of pipe tobacco and cocoa as the American oak lingers through the aging of 12 long months. Luscious from start to finish, this wine is easy to drink, but impossible to forget. Share it with your friends tonight.
Try pairing with a barbecue burger, a slice of Pt. Reyes blue cheese or some dark chocolate macarons. " ~ Winery notes
Bogle VineyardsView all from Bogle Vineyards
Although the Bogle family has been farming since the mid-1800's, it was not until 1968 that the father and son team of Warren and Chris Bogle planted their first 20 acres of wine grapes in Clarksburg, California. In this small farming community nestled along the Sacramento River, the Bogle family's years of hard work have developed into an impressive grape growing operation, as well as a nationally acclaimed winery. Today Bogle Vineyards farms over 1,500 acres of wine grapes. While the winery was established ten years after the first grapes were planted, its success has grown tremendously along with the vineyards. The success of Bogle over the years is rooted in one thing: the day-to-day involvement of the Bogle family. Currently the 6th generation of the Bogle family is getting its hands dirty in the family business. The children of Chris Bogle and his wife Patty, are currently at the helm. Ryan Bogle draws on his business degree and accounting experience to work the numbers side of the business. Jody Bogle VanDePol oversees customer relations, the wine club and all international sales. Warren Bogle, named after his grandfather and vineyard founder, continues the decades long tradition of farming the fertile Delta region. Like his father and grandfather, Warren understands that in order to produce quality wines, you must first produce quality grapes. This respect for the land and the vines is crucial to the success of Bogle wines, and continues to be passed down to the newestgeneration of Bogle's today.
