Bogle Vineyards Petite Sirah California 2009
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.
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
Smooth and full sweet fruit. A wonderful cocktail wine.
External Reviews for Bogle Vineyards Petite Sirah California
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.
