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

Chemically licorice nose - which didnt excite me. However, in the mouth its a lot nicer with fat fruity flavors of bing cherry, and blackberry. Nice chocolate, cedar and vanilla flavors. Toasted marshmallow and bread on the finish, with more Christmas spice and vanilla. Nice

This is fruity, light tannins/acid, easy to drink on its own or with food. 22$ CAN - I would say this is good value...although it is a little "uncomplicated" - but depends on the mood your in! Buy some.

Smooth...yes. Soft tannins...yes. Silky...yes. Mouthfeel...moderate. However, VERY heavy oak overwhelms the fruit. I find it disconcerting with an aftertaste. Barely Ok for everyday drinking and when no other choice is around but NOT to serve guests who who have tasted better. Buy for oneself only when on sale!

Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Stalky and stemmy, vaguely green elements wend their ways into this wine's modestly fruit aromas and thin, modestly fruity flavors. Surprisingly harsh tannins interrupt from mid-palate onward and leave this modest wine gasping for air.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Bogle’s Merlot is another great example of the soft and silky wine that this varietal can be. Concentrated aromas of earthy spice and cherries surround the senses. Mere hints of pipe tobacco and spicy oak lend depth to the finish, reinforced by firm, tannins.

A great example of the soft, silky texture for which Merlot is known. Concentrated aromas of earthy spice and cherries surround the senses. Tiny hints of pipe tobacco and spicy oak lend depth to the finish, which is reinforced by firm tannins.
