Bogle Vineyards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Crushed violets and strawberries permeate the nose of this wine, while touches of green tea and dried spices hint at flavors to come. The mouthfeel, sleek and sophisticated, resonates with Rainier cherries, aromatic leather and a touch of tobacco. French and American oak makes quite an impression, leaving a perfectly balanced finish with spicy, yet refined tannins.

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

Classic flavor profile at such a ridiculously low price! Floral/berry notes lead into earthy/spicy leather, mushroom and dried herb aromas and flavors. Suave and elegant on the finish. 94pts.

The 2004 Bogle Pinot Noir brings glorious violet and rose petal aromas to the nose. The flavors are of dark fruit, and a wonderful toasty oak. The texture is silky, and the finish is lingering with hints of leather and pipe tobacco. A truly elegant

The first impression recalls a sun-dappled forest clearing, scattered with sweet wild strawberries and rustic mint. These hints of pine, bright berry and fresh herbs follow on the well-balanced palate, surrounded by soft suggestions of tea leaves and violets. Toasty vanilla winds itself throughout, wrapping around the finish: long, silky and elegant.

This wine is a light to medium bodied Pinot Noir with bright violet and cherry notes that are followed by subtle cocoa and toasty oak notes. The finish has a bit of structure to it with aromas of earth and pomegranate. Bogle's Website

The cool coastal breezes of the Russian River appellation produce some of the most widely acclaimed Pinot Noir grapes. Bogle winemakers worked with long-time growers in this region to create this year's vintage. A wine of structure and finesse, floral aromas of crushed rose petals and violets are welcoming and inviting. Dense fruit flavors of black cherry integrate with moderately toasty oak overtones. The lingering impression on the palate is one of firmly weighted fruit with a soft, silky finish, echoing with touches of pipe tobacco and earthy leather. This wine is elegance with accessibility.
