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

i am really happy with this wine, thought that the oak would be overpowering but it's well intigrated and lends a great deal to the wine. The wine is runs juicy with red and black berries, currant, a hint of spice, wonderfully medium bodied, and so tasty.

Ruby red color with lots of ripe red fruit & black cherry with hints of cedar on the nose and palate. This has a nice mouth feel and medium body with some pepper on the finish when combined with spicy food.

Give this puppy some time to open up. I'm guessing it was very recently bottled, so it should be tastier in a few months. Nice ripe fruit. A bit tannic, but a good $10 wine.

Nice color. Red berry on the nose. Cinnamon spice with short finish, but it was there. Will drink it again.

Purply, red hue. Dark fruit with a bit of sweetness on the nose, nice! Long slow legs down the side of the glass. Velvety, with oaky tannins but ends with a hint of soft fruit. Only drawback, it's a bit hot on the finish. 14.8% alcohol. Whew!

It was light red in glass, light bodied, with a very mixed berry selection of complex flavours milling around - all the while some light vanilla in background. The fruit is forward for sure. I let it sit for a good 30 mins in glass which helped for sure. This is 24$ CAN - and for this price i am buying more for the shelf for sure.
