Bogle Chardonnay California 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

A rich and elegant wine with layers of complexity. The inviting aroma suggests freshly sliced pears and apples, while the delicately creamy entry gives way to reveal softer hints of baking spices like cloves and nutmeg. Superb value in a true California style.

Although the Bogle family has been farming since the mid-1800's, it was not until 1968 that the father and son team of Warren and Chris Bogle planted their first 20 acres of wine grapes in Clarksburg, California. In this small farming community nestled along the Sacramento River, the Bogle family's years of hard work have developed into an impressive grape growing operation, as well as a nationally acclaimed winery. Today Bogle Vineyards farms over 1,200 acres of wine grapes in the Delta region. While the winery was established ten years after the first grapes were planted, its success has grown tremendously along with the vineyards. The success of Bogle over the years is firmly rooted in one thing: the day-to-day involvement of the Bogle family in the hands-on effort to produce and promote quality wines. Patty Bogle became involved in the early years of the vineyards with her late husband Chris, when they planted fields together in the early 1970's. Patty took over operation of the winery in 1989 and has directed production to new and exciting heights. Patty's daughter Jody also contributes to the family business by being active in customer support, as well as running the wine club and handling all international sales. Patty's son Warren, named after the founder of Bogle Vineyards, is the sixth generation of the Bogle family to farm this fertile Delta region. Like his grandfather and father, Warren understands that in order to produce quality wines, you must first produce quality grapes. This tradition of respect for the land and the vines is crucial to the success of Bogle wines. The production of Bogle wine is influenced by this family tradition as well as the ever-changing trends in the wine industry. Since 1992, Bogle Winery has participated in the California Appellation Program. In this program, winemakers source fruit from some of the best vineyards in the state and blend them with Bogle's Estate Vineyards in Clarksburg, thus assuring that the wines benefit from many of the incredible grape growing regions of California. Each and every Bogle wine created is a unique and exciting blend with true varietal character and an approachable style. With their deep commitment to quality, the Bogle family wouldn't have it any other way. Read less

Sweet on the nose with lots of vanilla cream, coconut and fresh ginger spiciness over light apple fruit. Round and plump in the mouth with soft apricot, green plum and vaguely limey flavors under creamy, soft vanilla spice notes. There's good acidity here, which is well-balanced by the sweet apple fruit which dominates the moderately long, creamy, vanilla-tinged finish. A bit round and fruity for my palate, but there's no denying the appeal here. Cocktail wine. 85pts Acidity: Medium Low Perceived Sweetness: Medium Low Oak: Medium Low Spicy Flavors: Medium Low Savory Flavors: Medium Low Fruity Flavors: Medium Intensity of Flavor: Medium Weight in Mouth: Medium

Starts out with apple pie notes (tart apples, nutmeg, cinnamon, buttery crust) but then takes a turn towards fresh and vibrant citrus fruit on the finish. Outstanding for the price! 92pts

Bogle Chardonnay is barrel fermented with sur-lies aging, and partial malolactic fermentation creates aromas of green apple and ripe pear with cream and butter aromas and palate feel. The spice and toast of the oak is also noted in both the palate and aromas but are not overwhelming

Aromas of fruit and spice mingle and tantalize the senses as you first encounter this Chardonnay. Green apples and juicy pears give way to elegant hints of Meyer lemons, but circle back to finish ripe and refreshing on the palate. Created by aging on the lees, the rich and velvety mouthfeel takes the fruit to another level, allowing the flavors to sink softly into spicy vanilla notes of American oak. The finish, graceful as a lemon meringue, perfectly balances the wine's creaminess and acidity.

Generous aromas of fruit and toasty oak entice the senses as you first encounter this Chardonnay. Green apples and juicy pears give way to elegant hints of lemon meringue, and finish ripe and refreshing on the palate. Created by aging on the lees, the rich and velvety mouthfeel adds complexity to the fruit, allowing the flavors to sink softly into toasty notes of American oak. The finish, lingering and graceful, is coupled by a mouthwatering acidity that creates a longing for just one more sip... - Winery

With a generous entry and layer of complexity, this Chardonnay has green apple and ripe pear aromas that overwhelm the senses, while a creamy and buttery texture that caresses the palate. With notes of nutmeg and spice, the finish leaves with crispness and balanced acidity. Bogle's Website
