Bogle Vineyards Zinfandel California Old Vine 2010
One of the few Zinfandels I liked immediately. This wine was intense with deep berry taste which lingered on the entire surface of my tongue, a slight peppery tang with tannins that I could realize were there for my palate to enjoy. The finish was grand, the taste remains as I sip another to refresh my palate's memory.Add winemaker's notes

What a delicious Zin this is. Sourced from the warm climates of Lodi and Amador County, it’s ripe and fruity, offering waves of wild raspberries and cherries dusted with brown sugar, cocoa and pie spice. Great value in a lusty, versatile Zin.
A juicy fruit bomb, with appealing cherry, tea and spicy vanilla flavors. Drink now through 2017.
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.
Rich, enticing layers of complexity, starting with that first irresistible sip. Ripe fruit, intense with flavors of boysenberries and sweet cherries. Luscious vanilla, caressing the palate from barrel aging in American and French oak. Juicy and silky throughout, with a finish that lingers of black licorice and spicy pipe tobacco.
Head-trained, dry farmed vines are prized for their production of small, concentrated clusters of grapes that produce incredibly rich and intense wines. For years, Bogle has sought out these rugged old vines to create our Old Vine Zinfandel.Bold and vibrant notes of summer raspberry intoxicate the senses, enticing you to take a sip of this lively red zinfandel. Once on the palate, flavors of briary blackberries and ripe cranberries meld with tones of baking spices such as clove and nutmeg. Nuances are added from the young American oak, concentrating and enhancing the juicy mouthfeel. The full-bodied tannin structure relaxes into a smooth and supple finish: long, lingering and full of enjoyment. - Winery
