Bogle Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc California 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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

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.


External Review

Aromas of black tea, black cherry, herb and spice are medium-bodied and complex, if on a modest scale. Drink now through 2014.
