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

This is a big, full-bodied blend of dark, jammy berries and black pepper with subtle spice notes and an oaky finish. The wine possesses a high tannin level (relatively acidic), which suggests superior pairings with fatty foods, such as soft cheeses, lamb shanks and sausages.

The best of the Bogle wines that I have tasted, somewhat spicy and dry. Much better than their Cabs or Merlots. Good for an everyday wine.

Tremendously fruity, with huge berries both red and black, mace, and cinnamon on the nose and the palate. Finishes with wet rock and petrol, and surprisingly light tannins. Would be excellent with duck, rare steak, and smoked foods.

Loved the past vintages and this does not disappoint - I want to wait another couple of months for the true test but here is my initial reaction - I tasted first and then let it sit in the fridge for 1 hour - that was the ticket - more pepper and spice than 2005 - I get lots of choc covered cherries, blueberries and mocha - smooth finish with a hint of choc candy - will be great 6 months from now!

A toasty vanilla bean note adds charm to the medium-bodied wild berry and grapey aromatics. Appealing for its focus and smooth ripe fruit flavors. Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2012.

Ripe, with vivid pomegranate, wild berry and raspberry-rhubarb flavors that have a spicy floral edge. Ends with a complex aftertaste and firm, integrated tannins. Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2011.

Lots of old vine grapes went into the making of this Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Mourvedre blend. It's intensely fruity and spicy, a clean wine to wash down barbecue and burgers.

Made from Petit Sirah, Zinfandel and Mourvegrave;dre, this is a dry, tannic and full-bodied red wine to drink with grilled meats and cheese. It has spicy flavors of cherries, blackberries, plums and cocoa.

Wine Tasting NotesHead-trained, dry farmed old vines are again the source for Bogles Old Vine Zinfandel. These gnarly old vines produce concentrated fruit of unsurpassed quality and intensity. This supple and mouth-filling vintage leads with juicy blueberry and ripe blackberry fruit. Black pepper and hints of chocolate notes integrate well with this soft, plush body. Subtle hints of spicy oak and pipe tobacco create structure, allowing this wine to stand up to a variety of fare. This is the perfect wine to pair with everything from rich sauces and unique dishes, to your favorite weeknight take-out.

Bogle Vineyards Phantom Clarksburg 2006 750ML


External Review

As everyone knows, "bogle" is synonymous with hobgoblin, bogeyman, and bugbear. The Bogle Phantom, despite having a somewhat redundant name, is a tight, focused blend, consisting mainly of Petite Sirah and old-vine Zinfandel, with a touch of Mourvèdre adding mystique.
