Jammy on the nose and slightly peppery. Spice and dried woodsy notes accent the tarry, slightly dried plummy fruit, topped with toasted sawdust. Nicely balanced in the mouth and lighter bodied that the nose suggests. This is a bit angular and dry to the point of slight bitterness, but the fruit is bright if low in the mouth with a stewed red fruit quality. Really well balanced which makes this surprisingly easy to dink. Not complex with pleasant flavors, but the texture is what people must love. The finish is also fairly surprising, showing a simple oak red fruit quality with good length. 85pts

Ahh Bogle, I love how you never disappoint...and impress with your Zin! A fairly heavy one you are, with some smokiness accented by a very slight medicinal note. I can certainly drink you up on your own but would love you with a lovely pork tenderloin

A consistently dependable standby. This vintage doesn't disappoint with its bang-for-buckness. Blackberry and dark cherry flavors. Pleasantly medicinal (Dr. Pepper), decent acid balance and spice.

My Rating: 89. This wine has a medium body with plenty of fruit .The nose is very long with nice spicy fruit aromas. For the Price at Bj's of $ 9.- a good buy

After first opening this wine was good, but had an almost extreme floral quality (violets?-not sure) that was not present in the nose, but sort of dominated the other flavors in the mouth. After an hour or two the floral quality diminished on the tongue but became slightly present in the nose. then tended to fade out altogether as time went on, which I considered to be a good thing, for it was interesting, but kind of distracting. At the end of the first night, and especially the second day, this wine settled down to become an incredibly smooth and enjoyable wine to drink. Blackberries and black cherry nose and flavors, plus a great balance of dry with just a touch of sweetness. Still kind of big and bold in a way, but smooth in others (low key in spice and brambliness compared to some Zins) This wasn't the Zin experience I was searching for, but this found me, and introduced me to a very drinkable and pleasant wine, once it was opened for a while, anyway. I give my kudos to Bogle, because every Bogle wine I have tasted I have liked

2009: excellent upon first opening, lost quality by next day. For 2010 vintage: luscious, spicy, excellent drink alone wine.

Excellent blended wine. Pepper and currant tones. Paired with a cheese baked baguette. Highly recommend for the price.

Smooth and supple-textured, with a modest but classy blend of cocoa, coffee, black cherry, plum, vanilla and spice flavors, finishing with good length.

Excellent value, with currant, wild berry and dried raspberry flavors that pick up vanilla, cedar and tangy structure on the finish. Drink now through 2006.

Roasted black cherry, dried wild berry, smoke and chewy mocha flavors are framed by lively acid and tannins. A very good value. Drink now through 2006.

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.

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.

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.

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.
