On the nose, notes of tea leaf, cherry cola and earth tones add richness and depth to the first impression of the wine. Bright cherry, red currant and ripe fig mingle with toasty herbal tones, all combining to create a silky and smooth mouthfeel. To perfectly compliment the fruit, the wine was aged in American oak for 12 months, creating firm tannins that balance the supple and lingering finish.View all products by Bogle
Bogle Vineyards can be considered a quintessential winery located in the Clarksburg and Lodi areas of Northern California. The current winemaker, Eric Aafedt, has been at the helm since 1994. He blends the use of modern technology with traditional technique and the results are bold and warming wines that any California wine drinker would appreciate.
This family-run estate blends from vineyards located all over this Mediterranean climate. These vineyards have holdings of an array of classic grapes such as Merlot, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Riesling, but it's their Petite Sirah that they deem their heritage variety, as it was one of the first planted by founder Warren Bogle in 1968. A deep and concentrated grape, Clarksburg's warm days ripen it fully while cool breezes from the San Francisco Bay frame its strong structure.
The wine is reminiscent of blackberry preserves, red and black plums rounded out with turned earth and fresh pine. Aged for twelve months in French oak, touches of cinnamon, anise and cocoa give the wine a pretty softness. The palate has a touch of liquered strawberry and green peppercorn. It would sit perfectly on the dinner table with a rack of lamb in blackberry sauce or with good ol' Texas barbecue short ribs. Its versatility could keep this wine around well into a cheese plate, serving as a sweet complement to smoked cheeses.
