Bogle Vineyards Zinfandel California Old Vine 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Old Vine Zinfandel Petite Sirah and Old Vine Mourvedre: These three unique varietals combine lush berry and fierce spice into a full-bodied wine. Concentrated and intense this deep ruby apparition begins with ripe cranberry and cherry notes on the nose and palate. From the deep dark depths notes of spicy cinnamon and sweet vanilla emerge only to ebb away stubbornly with hints of pipe tobacco. Though this wine is remarkable now age in the bottle will only integrate the three distinct varietals more.

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

An extremely smooth and rich zinfandel. Deep color, great flavor, and nice finish. Goes great with pasta, meats, and chocolate. A great bargain.

Overall this is a very tasty wine, even at such a new vintage. Highly recommended to enjoy with tomato dishes as well as stronger meats.

Inexpensive and reliably yummy; not too dry, not too sweet.
