Bogle Vineyards Petite Sirah California 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Voluptuous and full-bodied on the entry, the heady aromas of black currants and plums awaken the senses. Lusciously jammy and inky in appearance, the concentrated fruit wraps itself around tones of pipe tobacco, leather and cocoa, to mesmerize the palate. Juniper and spice seduce the supple tannins, as this wine finishes long and lingering, but not before a final touch of acidity charms the balanced mouthfeel yet again. Food Pairing: Try this unique wine with rich meat dishes of lamb, pork or game and their hearty sauces.

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

Tip of the hat to Bogle, again! Fruit & spice & everything nice & all at a very reasonable price. The full-bodied finish is a "killer". 91pts.

My Rating 89: This wine was better in past vintages. It still displays a full body but much more acidic. As always a handful of oak chips helps this wine and imparts an interesting flavor. The nose is full bodied and very well balanced. I still recommend this wine as a real bargain. I paid $ 8.99 at BJ's

A lot more character and complexity than you typically find at this price. Dense, rich and chewy, it serves up a real mouthful of wild berry, black cherry, plum and spice. Tannic, too, but the peppery notes on the finish ring true. Drink now.

First produced in 1978 by the Bogle family, this 2004 Petite Sirah is considered Bogle's "heritage" varietal. On the nose, luscious boysenberry teases you along with touches of black pepper and herbs. Trademark inky and jammy tones fill the mouth with ripe fruit and berries. The voluptuous finish lingers with toasty oak and lush fruit. The firm tannins make this a wine that can develop for years to come, but you won't want to wait that long to enjoy it! Try this unique wine with rich meat dishes of lamb, pork or game and their hearty sauces.

Pizza? Lasagna? This is the perfect inexpensive wine. It's full-bodied and brawny, and totally dry, with big tannins and fresh, deep flavors of blackberries, coffee, cocoa and dried leather. Shows real character, and will develop for a few years.

This excellent value from California is brawny, with blueberry pie, cocoa and blackberry flavors. Chunky tannins and lavish toasty oak carry their intensity through the concentrated finish. Drink now through 2010.

Wild huckleberry, blueberry, grape and mineral notes are intense and focused, with taut tannins and smoky aromatics. Drink now through 2012.

Bold, rich and complex, with raisin, prune, wild berry and cola flavors supported by big, rich tannins. Finishes with an intense aftertaste. Drink now through 2005.

This is a fragrant, floral version of Petite, offering firm but smooth tannins and a core of ripe blueberry and boysenberry flavors that show violet, black licorice and spice details. Drink now through 2019.
