Yolo County is an emerging wine region within the Central Valley district of California. The Sacramento River Delta provides a channel for cooling winds, making it the coolest region in Central Valley. It’s further divided into subregions, and the majority of the vineyards are located in the ones closest to the delta to the east, within the Clarksburg and Merritt Island AVA’s. But pioneering winemakers, such as John and Lane Giguiere, who founded R.H. Phillips winery, promote the warm weather conditions in the Dunnigan Hills and Capay Valley.
 
The warm weather climate is most conducive to varietals such as Syrah, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Syrah, Tempranillo. White grapes grown are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc. ~Amanda Schuster

  • Bogle Merlot California 2012

    Snoothrank:

    2012 vintage Bogle Merlot. Pleasant cherry nose. Overpowering acid on the palate. Seems a bit viney tannins as if they included the hard press into the wine.I much prefer the smoothness of a Maggio Family Vineyards Lodi Merlot. Read More

  • Matchbook Old Head Chardonnay 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Kind of flat and flabby. There's oak and lemon cream on the nose and the palate. Not a whole lot of acidity or depth just the oak and not much else. Read More

  • Bogle Merlot California 2012

    Snoothrank:

    $8.99 at Trader Joe's. 2012 vintage. A little higher acid on first opening, but aerates into a very fruity, bold wine. Overripe cherries, strawberries, some blackberry. For those looking for a full-bodied, deep, complex wine, the 2012 Bogle Cab hit a better note, but I would definitely buy this wine again. Would serve to guests. Read More

  • Bogle Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Bold, full-bodied, low tannins, sweet smelling, tastes of dark fruit - dark cherry, ripe plums, ripe blackberries - very juicy and delicious. Hints of dark chocolate, paired perfectly with 70% cacao. For the price, this is a fantastic wine - better than Cabs I've had from Napa that cost 4X as much. Flavors evolve as you let it aerate. Found this... Read More

  • Bogle Pinot Noir 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly aromatic with small grapefruit aromas and a nice streak of lime on the nose. followed by late arriving grassy notes. pretty crisp on entry if just a bit thick on the plate. This displays attractive white peach and citrus flavors in a medium full style with plenty of refreshing acidity. Theres not much follow through on the modest finish ... Read More

  • Bogle Chardonnay California 2012

    Snoothrank:

    I agree with other reviewers, this is a moderately oaked classic California chardonnay with apple, pear, apple pie, and fruit salad flavors that linger in a nice finish for a chard at this price. About 86 points, 3.5 glasses considering the price (about 10 bucks) I would recommend it. Read More
