Rating 87 : Not as good as previous vintages but still good!!! Strong berry nose with complex aromas. Body more tart with a good balance and fruity tones.

Nose improves with decanting, with some berry and moderate oak. Blueberry predominates on the palate, with chewy structure, moderate acidity and a tiny touch of spice. Virtually no finish.

Heady, sexy and voluptuous, layering notes of raspberry liqueur, dark chocolate and sweet vanilla. 94pts

Bogle Vineyards Petite Sirah 2008 is lacking in character and is rather bland. There is much better out there even at this price. 82 pts

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


External Review

Direct, fresh and fruity, with blackberry, grape and pepper flavors. Finishes with fleshy tannins and an herbal note. Drink now through 2012.

Ripe summer blackberries and plums overwhelm both the nose and palate of this wine. Its trademark inky, jammy qualities are a barrage of black fruit and spice, adding layer upon layer of complexity.

Full-bodied on the entry, aromas of black plum jam and toasty oak set the stage for what is to come. Vibrant boysenberries and luscious of leather and vanilla seduce just enough. A final touch of acidity finishes the wine with a precisely balanced mouthfeel. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

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.

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.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

A richness on the nose is immediately complemented by touches of dark cherry and anise. Hints of exotic liqueurs, jammy berries and just the suggestion of cocoa powder envelop the well balanced mouthfeel. Voluptuous and enticing, this dessert wine will seduce even the most reluctant of drinkers. This will be enjoyable for the next 20 years.
