Bogle Vineyards Chardonnay California 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Classic Clarksburg personality shines through in the green apple and pear notes, while a bit more tropical pineapple breezes by. The rich mouthfeel created by aging on the lees abounds mid-palate, while the finish is wrapped in creamy textures and tones from the malolactic fermentation. Spicy American oak notes of butterscotch and vanilla are the perfect balance to the freshness and acidity of the multifaceted wine. Enjoy this wine with just about everything!

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

Straw bright, aromas of baked apple, tropical fruits and butterscotch; flavor notes of caramel apples, pears and sweet woods, balanced, but not distinctive.

    I'm not a big chardonnay fan but I really enjoyed this wine. Crisp, slightly sweet and easy drinking.

    Perfumed and fruity aromas of peach and nectarine, with floral notes, it's ripe and juicy, with vibrant fruit flavors. Excellent value. Drink now.

    Barrel fermentation, sur-lie aging and partial malolactic fermentation have created a rich and elegant wine with layers of complexity. The soft and inviting aromas suggest a warm apple cobbler right out of the oven cooling on the kitchen table. A delicately creamy entry gives way to reveal fresh flavors of Macintosh apple as well. Spicy oak and a touch of cinnamon integrate with this intense fruit, delivering a finish long and lingering.

    Toasty oak and bright citrus flavors from the core of this snappy wine. Clean and fresh on the finish.

    Fresh and lively, full-bodied and smooth-textured, with vibrant green apple, melon, ripe pear and honeysuckle flavors, ending with a long, full finish. Drink now through 2011.

    An amazing wine, especially at this price. Fresh, intense and vibrant, with sweat pea, green apple, melon and honeysuckle notes that are full-bodied, ending with a clean, crisp finish. The best of three bottles tasted. Drink now through 2014.
