Winemaker's Notes:

"This classically made Sauvignon Blanc showcases the exceptional characteristics of this varietal. The freshness of the fruit is apparent with aromas that are crisp with vibrant citrus. The palate starts and ends cleanly with refreshing hints of tropical fruit." -Winery

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

Faint green herbal aromas greet the nose with suggestions of earthy dried lemon pith. Light and fresh in the mouth, this taste much better than it smells. It’s a modest wine but one that offers fresh and simple citrus fruit flavors that are clean and bright on the palate, turning slightly mineral and pith on the fairly long finish. Serviceable. 82pts

Nice enough mid-week drinker. Nothing great but nothing bad either. No grapefruit just green apple. Not much citrus notes but there's a decent amount of acidity.

Family owned Bogle vineyards has an amazing reputation for producing wines that show outstanding value. This is their Pinot Noir which they source from vineyards in Monterey County and the Russian River Valley as well as cooler vineyards in the Clarksburg Delta near the winery. All of these provide Pinot Noir that has good balance, bright fruit flavors and lively acidity. Fermented in temperature controlled tanks and aged for 10 months in French and American oak. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying "A strong, vibrant texture of crisp acidity and firm tannins energizes this flavorful and distinctive wine. Red cherry and raspberry aromas lead to crisp cranberry and cherry flavors. An appealing dry finish brings you back for another sip." Additionally, JustWinePoints.com felt this lively Pinot worthy of a 98 point score. Hard to get a better endorsement than that, especially at this price!

Stylistically, Sauvignon Blanc can vary depending on a winemaker's whim, from green and grassy, austere and stony, to fruity and plush. Bogle winemakers have selected highlights from many different styles to craft a lovely, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc.Vibrant on the nose with notes of lemon grass, mowed hay and a touch of jalapeño, this wine awakens the senses before the first sip. Lively, exotic flavors of passion fruit and kiwi are quenching and delightful, with a touch of softness in the mid palate. Mouthwatering gooseberry and lime finish clean and bright, and ready for another sip. - WineryWINE pH: 3.24WINE ACIDITY: 0.65g/100mlALCOHOL: 13.5%

The first impression recalls a sun-dappled forest clearing, scattered with sweet wild strawberries and rustic mint. These hints of pine, bright berry and fresh herbs follow on the well-balanced palate, surrounded by soft suggestions of tea leaves and violets. Toasty vanilla winds itself throughout, wrapping around the finish: long, silky and elegant.
