Bogle Vineyards Petite Sirah Port Clarksburg 2008
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.
really basic wine, jammy, soft, lots of fruit that might come off to some as off-dry, medium bodied and rather boring. a little manufactured quality to the nose...
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
mild spice. pretty good wine.

External Reviews for Bogle Vineyards Petite Sirah Port Clarksburg
Pizza? Lasagna? This is the perfect inexpensive wine. Itrsquo;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 wine is packed with flavor, from bright cherry, cranberry and raspberry, to spicy plum, currants and black pepper. Vivid and lively, with a sense of richness from the dense fruit, yet light enough to enjoy on its own. Itrsquo;s hard to imagine a wine with more flavor for the dollar.
First produced in 1978 by the Bogle family, this 2004 Petite Sirah is considered Boglersquo;s ldquo;heritagerdquo; 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 wonrsquo;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.
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.
Direct, fresh and fruity, with blackberry, grape and pepper flavors. Finishes with fleshy tannins and an herbal note. Drink now through 2012.
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.
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 **
