Bogle Vineyardsis a family run winery with over 1,200 acres in the Sacramento Delta region in Clarksburg, California. They are a big enough producer that I find their wines in nearly every wine shop I visit. And in my experience their wines tend to be consistently good for the price. The first Bogle wine I ever tried was their Petite Sirah and that was such a great value that I always look forward to trying more wines from them.
The Old Vine Zinfandel was another good experience from Bogle. While I’ve had some better Zinfandels at higher price points the quality of this wine is very good for the price—just $10!
The nose had a strong cedar aroma, like opening a cedar chest. There was also a bit of blackberry and plum on the nose. The mouth feel is very full and satisfying. The palate has big blackberry and plum flavors. It’s a bit jammy, but not too much so. A little walnut is also in there and there’s some mid-palate chocolate. A super spicy finish that makes this quite enjoyable.
