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

Very fruity on the nose with jammy blackberry and bramble aromas that reveal plenty of Zinfandel in the blend with some black plummy fruit and a bit of black, licorice spice all covered with rather smoky, toasty raw oak. Moderately big on entry with a slightly chewy mouthfeel and flavors that are bold in their intensity but rather matte on the palate with a cold coffee quality that envelops the palate along with dark plummy and bitter chocolate fruit. The finish is rather raw, with scratchy tannins and some toasted almond notes and more brewed coffee character. A bit soft in the mouth, and a touch sweet, this is big and boring. 80pts

Aromas of ripe. dark summer berries, plums and nutmeg; the palate reinforces those notes and adds a subtle peppery spice to the mix, finishing firm yet smooth. 92pts

Nice and earthy nose and a mellow subtle pallet. dark berry flavors, but again relaly subtle. A surprising amounbt of tannins on the back end which cut short the dark berry flavor some. I did like it, though not as much as the 7 Deadly Zins.

At the nose black and red fruits, some notes of chocolate, great in mouth, a plenty of flavor that fill it, the red and black fruits repeat at mouth, great center and good finale.
