for this region?


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 Pinot Noir 2013


    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


    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

  • Bogle Chardonnay California 2012


    Creamy baked apple pie aromas greet the nose with subtle vanilla streaks that recall a la mode pie. Theres even a little allspice and cinnamon here to complete the picture. Gently sweet/tart on entry, this actually shows more freshness of fruit that the nose suggestion, though it is fairly ripe apple and nectarine tinged fruit. The sweetness be... Read More

  • Bogle Chardonnay California 2012


    This is still what I would classify as "entry-level," but it is certainly a good value. What is has: vanilla, cream, light tropical fruit, and some astringency. Good value. Read More

  • The Crusher Grower's Selection Petite Sirah 2011


    I'm not much on describing wines so I'll just say I really like this one. World Market has it for $13 locally, if you can find it at the $10 level that seems common on the internet, it's a real value. Read More
