Friday Wine Tasting…Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel

January 14, 2012

Wine of the Week

Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel


Today is the first time in weeks that it actually feels like winter and I think I might have even seen a flurry or two so I thought I would kick off the weekend with a bottle of red.  Bogle wines are some of my favorites and this one definitely does not disappoint.  It is perfect for a January night and a great price point!  Happy Friday!


Tasting Notes:

The nose had a strong cedar aroma, like opening a cedar chest.  There was also a bit of blackberry and plum on the nose. The mouth feel is very full and satisfying.  The palate has big blackberry and plum flavors.  It’s a bit jammy, but not too much so.  A little walnut is also in there and there’s some mid-palate chocolate.  A super spicy finish that makes this quite enjoyable.  -Tim Lemke
