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:

    $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

  • Essential Red Bogle Vineyards 2011

    Snoothrank:

    An unspecified blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, cabernet Sauvignon, and Petite Sirah Noticeably oaky on the nose with some notes of smoky bacon and lots of cedary spice over lightly pepper berry fruit. Noticeably sweet on entry, though not terribly heavy due to the relatively high acids here. Theres a fairly strong mocha note early on the palate that ... Read More

  • Chardonnay Bogle Vineyards 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

  • Chardonnay Bogle Vineyards 2012

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Chardonnay Bogle Vineyards 2012

    Snoothrank:

    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
