OCTober Wine REgion of the Month:

Bogle Vineyards

Summer is officially over as we head into the Fall climes, hopefully a bit cooler and certainly excited about the pending holidays. And as Halloween approaches, what could be better than a big, full bodied Red named Phantom. The Bogle family has been farming since the mid-1800’s, but 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, this 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. The success of Bogle over the years is firmly rooted in one thing: The day-to-day involvement of the Bogle family and their hands on effort to produce and promote quality wines. Each and every Bogle wine created is a unique and exciting blend with true varietal character and an approachable style. No tricks here, just treats!

Bogle Sauvignon Blanc

Suggested Retail $10.99 – WOTM Special $8.99

Created in a classic style, Bogle’s Sauvignon Blanc was cold fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks, using reductive winemaking practices, to maintain its varietal character: crisp, vibrant and refreshing. Notes of tropical gooseberry are paired with hints of green peppers, springs herbs and freshly cut grass. A touch of citrus fruit zest teases your mouth as well. Absolutely refreshing, the thick and round mouth feel is well balanced with crisp acidity for a lasting and memorable finish.

Bogle Chardonnay

Suggested Retail $10.99 – WOTM Special $8.99

Bogle’s Chardonnay has a little something for everyone: barrel fermentation, sur-lies aging, and partial malolactic fermentation. These hand-crafted processes create a rich and elegant wine with layers of complexity. Fresh tropical fruits like pineapple, mango and green apple greet both the nose and palate upon first sip, followed up by a touch of lemon cream. Complimented by more creamy notes of butterscotch and caramel, the wine has a long, lingering finish hinting of toasty oak.

Bogle Phantom Chardonnay

Suggested Retail $19.99 WOTM Special $16.99

The newest “apparition” to the Bristol family, Phantom Chardonnay entices with its rich layers. Green apple and pear transform into spicy flavors of freshly baked apple pie, while barrel fermentation imparts a creamy, luscious mouthfeel. French oak whispers sweet notes of vanilla and melted caramel.

Bogle Pinot Noir

Suggested Retail $10.99 WOTM Special $8.99

The cool confines of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County provide a near perfect climate for the development of delicate Pinot Noir aromatics and flavors. Cloaked in morning fog with warm sunshine through the later day, these valley floor vineyards grow tiny, perfect clusters of deeply colored fruit. Bright violet and cherry impressions are followed by subtle cocoa and toasty oak notes. The finish shows structure with finesse and aromas of earth and pomegranate.

Bogle Merlot

Suggested Retail $10.99 WOTM Special $8.99

Bogle’s Merlot is another great example of the soft and silky wine that this varietal can be. Concentrated aromas of earthy spice and summer cherries surround the senses, while the first pleasant sip is a delightful wave of fresh red fruit and soft garden herbs. Mere hints of pipe tobacco and spicy oak lend depth to the finish, reinforced by firm, assertive tannins.

Bogle Cabernet Sauvignon

Suggested Retail $22.99 WOTM Special $19.99

Cabernet Sauvignon is a grape that takes its own sweet time, slowly lingering to ripen on the vine. Ripe cherries and vivid plums create a welcome first impression, while touches of earth tones and leather nestle themselves among the fruit.

Bogle Essential Red

Suggested Retail $10.99 WOTM Special $8.99

A compelling blend of California’s finest plantings of Old Vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah, Intense with flavors of boysenberries and sweet cherries with luscious vanilla, caressing the palate from barrel aging in American and French oak. Juicy and silky throughout, with a finish that lingers of black licorice and spicy tobacco.

Bogle Petite Sirah

Suggested Retail $10.99 WOTM Special $8.99

First produced in 1978 by the Bogle family, Petite Sirah is considered Bogle’s “heritage” varietal. On the nose, luscious boysenberry teases you along with touches of black pepper and herbs. Trademark inky and jammy tones fill the mouth with ripe fruit and berries. The voluptuous finish lingers with toasty oak and lush fruit. Try this unique wine with rich meat dishes of lamb, pork or game and their hearty sauces.

Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel

Suggested Retail $10.99 WOTM Special $8.99

Head-trained, dry farmed old vines are again the source for Bogle’s Old Vine Zinfandel. These gnarly old vines produce concentrated fruit of unsurpassed quality and intensity. This supple and mouth-filling vintage leads with juicy raspberry and ripe boysenberry fruit. Hints of spiced chocolate integrate well with a soft, plush body tinged with black pepper.

Bogle Phantom Red

Suggested Retail $19.99 WOTM Special $16.99

Phantom will delightfully scare you with its big, ripe berry and spice notes, certainly enough to haunt wine lovers during this month. Wild berries, black pepper and hints of juniper are framed by the influence of oak aging with baking spices with a hint of toasty vanilla. On the palate, the entry is explosive, supported by chewy, chalky tannins. Full of concentration and intensity, this wine will tease, tantalize and linger long after the last sip is gone. 42% Petite Sirah, 34% Zinfandel, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot
