Bogle Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon California 2009
Cabernet Sauvignon is a grape that takes its own sweet time, slowly lingering to ripen on the vine. We are rewarded by its reluctance. Ripe, bright cherries open up on the palate, with a hint of dried herbs and eucalyptus nestled among the fruit. Fourteen months in American barrels produced a well-integrated profile of spicy oak and rich tobacco. Firm but forgiving tannins leave a most welcome finish after each sip
Editorial Reviews for Bogle Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon California
Sweet smelling with dates and dried fruit aromas over a base of carob, vanilla and spicy oak. Round, a touch soft and fairly full bodied in the mouth, this is smooth and easy to drink with a simple balance of vanilla and spice flavors from oak, date and black currant fruit flavors. A little dull and short on the finish, though it does end with some spice, vanilla cream and strawberry fruit. 83pts
Wow! Pleasantly surprised! Enjoyed it while eating spicy ceviche. It was great. Not too heavy. My (non red drinker) friend, also enjoyed it. Lighter than most cabs (I think) but still big enough for me to enjoy!
Michalski's brought for going away party.
Still a tad young for my liking. Will age well and in the future I think will be one worth the price for sure. Complex and structured withe tastes of blackberry and currant. Try to find one, which is not to hard, and hold on to it for 2-3 years. Will be well worth the wait.
The wine itself is a blend of old vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Sirah, which raises the potential for this to be a wonderful everyday wine. The color is a deep red, with some garnet along the edges. The nose presents some some floral notes combine with leather and licorice, but overall the aromas seem quite subdued. The taste is very nice, with some initial bits of jammy red fruit, which transcends to a bit of peppery spice midpalate, and then finishing quite nicely with somewhat youthful tannins creating a nice bit of dryness.

Terrific everyday wine, with the quality I've come to expect from Bogle. Plenty of red and black fruit flavors with nice acidity and a touch of tannic pucker that balances it all out. Less rich/fruity than pure Syrah, less powerful than pure Zin.
Incredible value! Layers of dark fruits, sweet spice (vanilla, nutmeg, clove, etc.), cola and anise; full, smooth, tannic finish would match well with a juicy steak. 93pts.

1999 was a vintage unsurpassed in recent years, for red grapes in particular. Warm and dry through the last day of harvest, it seemed as though summer was unwilling to give up its hold on the vineyards. A 20% Cabernet Franc blend contributes bright and forward fruit to this traditionally styled wine. Deeply colored and loaded with black cherry, tobacco and toasty/leathery notes, the Cabernet Sauvignon has the intensity to stand up to robust fare.
Ripe, black cherry fruit brightens the palate, while the plump body rounds out the experience. Unaggressive tannins complement a finish of sweet oak, cinnamon and pipe tobacco. Enjoy with a myriad of wonderful foods and friends.
Ripe, bright cherry flavors open up with a hint of eucalyptus nestled in the fruit. Fourteen months in American barrels produces a well-integrated profile of spicy oak and rich tobacco.
Shows good richness and a nice range of flavors, with roasted herb, sage, dried currant and mineral notes. Full-bodied and rustic, but serves up a tasty mix of unbridled Cabernet. Best from 2011 through 2016.
Starts with plenty of oak, picking up modest tannins and fresh herbs, cedar and currant flavors. Drink now through 2005.
Tight and intense, built around a core of cedary oak, dried currant, herb, mineral and tobacco that are chewy and rustic, with gutsy tannins. Drink now through 2017.
Cabernet Sauvignon is a grape that takes its own sweet time, slowly lingering to ripen on the vine. We are rewarded by its reluctance. Overwhelming cherry and vivid plums create a welcome first impression, while touches of green tea leaves and leather nestle themselves among the spicy, saucy fruit. Fourteen months in American barrels have produced touches of melted caramel and white pepper. With well-integrated tannins and a rich and round finish, this wine will be a favorite for years to come. - Winery
