Nose was pleasant, but the alcohol tasted way out of balance. Very grainy finish that left a funny taste in my mouth.
I picked this up after a Pinot Noir wine tasting at On the Rocks in Hugo, MN. I didn't strike me as really good until my wife and I drank some with a "drunken steak" I grill. I twas really outstanding. I se the rating of 3 and think it is much better than average. I rate it a 4.
External Reviews for Bogle Vineyards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
Always classic in style, Bogle's Sauvignon Blanc was cold fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks to maintain its varietal character: crisp and vibrant with notes of citrus. A blend of fresh cut spring grass and lime assaults the nose, while a depth of mouthfeel at the entry and mid-palate balances this crisp acidity. Lemon and pineapple fruit compliments the clean, refreshing finish. This is the perfect sipper for a spring or summer day, or to pair with appetizers or fish, shellfish and light, spicy foods
Wine Tasting NotesThe cool confines of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County provide a near perfect climate for the development of delicate Pinot Noir aromatics and flavors. Cloaked in morning fog with warm sunshine through the later day, these valley floor vineyards grow tiny, perfect clusters of deeply colored fruit. Bright violet and cherry impressions are followed by subtle cocoa and toasty oak notes. The finish shows structure with finesse and aromas of earth and pomegranate.
