(From 2013 Vintage) 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 gnarly old vines to create our Old Vine Zinfandel. Greeted with the viscous, ripe fruit of jammy blackberries hanging on sun warmed vines, this Zinfandel is enticing and aromatic. Weightier than previous vintages, there’s a sturdy structure that is saturated with dark fruits, laced with hints of lavender and savory herbs. Cracked peppercorns and spicy juniper round out the finish, tempered by 12 months of aging in two-year old American oak.
(From 2013 Vintage) While Zinfandel and the word "sophisticated" aren't often found in the same sentence, this vintage from Bogle winemakers takes delicious fruit and creates a wine lively with red cranberries and pink peppercorns. Hints of a hillside briar patch in summer waft through the wine as well, while spicy clove heightens at the finish from the oak aging. Rustic and refined at all once, this Zinfandel is sure to please.
This is a versatile wine to pair with everything from rich and unique dishes, to your favorite barbecue or weeknight take out!
