Bogle Vineyards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2006

Member Review by Adam Levin:

Nose was pleasant, but the alcohol tasted way out of balance. Very grainy finish that left a funny taste in my mouth.

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

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.

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.

This is the first time that Bogle has made this limited edition Pinot Noir. Flavors of red raspberries and toasty vanilla oak make this the perfect barbecue wine.
