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.

Light and perfumed with the ripe scent of a basket of strawberries, this warm Zin is ready for sausages.

This supple and mouth-filling vintage leads with juicy blueberry and ripe blackberry fruit. Black pepper and hints of chocolate notes integrate well with this soft, plush body. Subtle hints of spicy oak and pipe tobacco create structure, allowing this wine to stand up to a variety of fare.

Sleek and zesty, with black cherry and cracked pepper aromas joined by appealing flavors of briary dried berry and licorice. Drink now through 2015.

Scents of sun-warmed, wild raspberries bubble up to the surface in your first impression of this Zinfandel. Notes of ripe berries and nutmeg follow, while touches of black pepper and subtle, spicy oak complement the fruit. Full-bodied; the mouthfeel is rounded out and finished with earthy notes and soft tannins.

Itrsquo;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 2001 Zinfandel Old Vinersquo;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 1ndash;2 years.

Head-trained, dry-farmed old vines are again the source for Boglersquo;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.
