Bogle Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc California 2009
Bogle Sauvignon Blanc has the freshly zested limes spring off the nose, followed by leechee nut and a tiny bit of orange peel. The citrus follows through on the palate, tinged by hints of tropical pineapple. Lean and light, yet surprisingly full of flavor, the Bogle Sauvignon Blanc finishes with brisk acidity that makes your mouth water for more! Perfect accompaniment to a wide range of appetizers and light dishes, especially fish and shellfish, spring greens and fruit salsas.
Editorial Reviews for Bogle Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc California
A bit spicy and leathery on the nose with hints of anise seed and black pepper along with a meaty edge to the blackberry and damson plum fruit. A nice blend of depth and lightness on the palate gives this an attractive mouthfeel with balanced flavors of oak, toast, some dried herb and nut tones all wrapped up in transparent dried cherry and raspberry fruit. This is fairly spicy with oak but the fruit does manage to keep the upper hand right through the moderately long, spicy and lightly peppery finish. Shows a bit of heat on the finish. 86pts
Leathery, a little hot and with some cocoa. More tangy.
Little earthy on the nose with a touch of raspberry. Decent tannin on the palate. Not a ton of grip, but most pinots are the same way. Not a fruit bomb by any means but there's just enough black cherry and raspberry to make it passable. Not the best pinot I've ever had, but for the price definitely a good QPR wine.
Dark plum color into the glass, with some long thick legs clinging to the glass. Nice deep earthy, woody aromas that warm up into berries, hayfields and peppery notes. Great firm structure, with tannins present with oak finish. Reminds me of Orin Swifts Reds.
Yummy floral and dark cherry notes are followed by just the slightest hint of earth & mocha. Silky smooth, it shifts towards bright red fruits (strawberry, pomegranate, plum) on the finish. 93pts.
Color: Clean pale yellow. Bouquet: Smells of grass and mint, sweet pear. Taste: A nice mild acidity, clean body and long finish. Crisp fruit taste with a hint of lime. Overall: Not bad! For the price I was quite surprised. As with most Bogle wines your mileage may vary. Drink immediately.

A bit soft and dull, but it's dry and silky like a Pinot Noir should be, with modest cherry and cola flavors.
This is a nice, savory, fruity Sauvignon Blanc that's versatile at the table. It's crisp in acidity, with the flavors of pineapples, limes and vanilla. Good with everything from fried chicken to Chinese food.
Tangy orange, lemon and lime flavors have a spicy edge, refreshing acidity and a mouthwatering finish in a package that's light-bodied and focused. Drink now.
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 complements 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.
A good example of a California Sauvignon Blanc, this white shows citrus, hay, fig and spicy green-melon flavors. It's dry and crisp, making it balanced, and a good accompaniment to food.
Lean and juicy, with lime, papaya, green apple and fragrant peach blossom notes. Has good intensity and vibrant acidity. Drink now.
Aromas of black tea, black cherry, herb and spice are medium-bodied and complex, if on a modest scale. Drink now through 2014.
