Wine Review: This dark red colored Zinfandel from Bogle is impressive and a great value. It opens with a strawberry bouquet with a hint of red plum. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and round. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry and red currant blend with notes of mild oak. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Zin is very food friendly and an absolute steal at $11. It would be a great glass pour. I would pair it with burgers or lasagna. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: 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 gnarled old vines to create our Old Vine Zinfandel. Vibrant, ripe notes of summer raspberry intoxicate the senses, enticing you to take a sip of this lively red zinfandel. Once on the palate, plush and round flavors of pomegranates meld with fresh cracked peppercorn, juniper and anise. Playful and serious at the same time, the mouth-coating tannins relax into a smooth and supple finish: long, lingering and full of enjoyment. Served best with: grilled sausages with caramelized onions and peppers or tandoori chicken.
