Style: The “Tom” (Medium body with fairly simple and straight-forward fruit flavors.)
Recommendation: “Grab a few bottles”
The Bogle is a very herb-driven interpretation of Pinot Noir. It serves up lots of oregano, sage, and earth, with just a little bit of tart cherry to give it a fresh and fruity edge. If you like more complex and earthy flavors, this should be up your alley. If you really prefer a very fruit-forward version, this probably isn’t the best choice for you.
It’s light on the nose, but quite strong on the palate. Light to medium body with a relatively long finish.
I personally like the earthy flavors and the powerful tastes so this one is a buy for me. At this price, I think it’s worth picking up a couple of bottles.
Bogle winemakers have sourced fruit from the best growing regions in California for the varietal. The terroirs of the cool Russian River Valley, coastal Monterey hills and the unique Clarksburg Delta all grow fruit of character and distinction. Combined, the resulting wine is and elegant, classic Pinot Noir.
Heady scents of ripe summer strawberries make a lovely first impression, while hints of crushed violets and sweet dried herbs resonate on the nose. Refined and nuanced, the mouthfeel softens as layers of cherry fruit are wrapped in a comforting blanket of pipe tobacco and worn leather. The firm, yet lingering finish is perfectly balanced with touches of baking spices, fragrant fruit and earth tones
