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

My Rating 87: This wine is of medium intensity, not as powerful I would expect a Old Zin to be. Nose develops into elegant fruit. Body is fruity but lacks complexity. Overall a wine that is a good value

Pretty damn concentrated without going sweet. Full & rich, with hints of dark berries, black plums & pepper spice. Hard to beat the price! 92pts.

I like my Zins with a little more gusto than this one. A full fruity wine, I get mostly plum. It's jammy and medium bodied. Good price and easy to drink.

The 2001 Zinfandel Old Vine's dark plum/ruby color is followed by earthy aromas of sandalwood, tree bark, cranberries, and cherries. This medium-bodied offering possesses excellent fruit, fine texture, and an attractive openness. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.

Round and supple, with very good intensity to the vanilla, cassis and raspberry character that folds into cedary tones and lively structure. Shows off a little peppery quality, too. Drink now through 2006.

Head-trained, dry-farmed old vines are again the source for Bogle's Old Vine Zinfandel. These gnarly old vines produce concentrated fruit of unsurpassed quality and intensity. This supple, mouthfilling wine leads with juicy blueberry and ripe blackberry fruit. Black pepper and hints of chocolate notes integrate well with the soft, plush body. Subtle hints of spicy oak and pipe tobacco create structure, allowing the 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.

Supple, juicy and easygoing, showing cola and bright cherry aromas, with spice and zesty licorice flavors. Drink now.

It's rare to find such a rich, luscious, heady red for under $15, but the Bogle Old Vine Zin will have you swearing it cost twice that! Dark black and blueberries lead the way, reminiscent of the jams your grandmother used to make, leaving you with the very same teeth-staining purple ink. 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.

The Zinfandel crop of 1998 was marked by some of the lightest yields seen in recent years. Blackberry, clove and pepper are the trademark characters apparent in this vintage. However, a subtle violet aroma lingers in the background. Intensity, weight and concentration make this a wine for fans of serious Zinfandel.

In the early 1900s, Zinfandel vines were planted in California. Many of these vineyards continues to produce a small quantity of rich, flavorful fruit. The older the vines are, the richer and more complex the wines produced are. This quintessential American wine can be enjoyed with beef stew or chili or perhaps with your Thanksgiving turkey.
