Bogle Pinot Noir California 2012
Editorial Reviews for Bogle Pinot Noir California
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
Four and a half glasses
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.
External Reviews for Bogle Pinot Noir California
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!
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.
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%
Floral aromas of violets and rose petals dance with wild strawberries on the nose of this wine. The mouthfeel, silky and refined, brightens with ripe chokeberry and currant, while touches of pipe tobacco and worn leather round out the sip. French and American oak make a lasting impression, leaving this wine with a balanced finish of toasted spices and refined tannins.- Winery Vineyard Source: Russian River Valley Monterey Clarksburg Barrel Program: 10 months in French and American Oak Wine pH: 3.67 Wine Acidity: 0.53g/100ml Alcohol: 13.5%
