It’s now nearly 50 years since father and son Chris and Warren Bogle established their first vineyard on eight hectares of land near Clarksburg in California. While the Bogle estate has since expanded to cover 14 different sites in the cooler areas of the Delta region near Sacramento, the boutique philosophy embraced from the outset still continues.
Family remains vital too – brother Ryan and sister Jody have joined Warren in the running of the company – and that extends to the friendly cellar door operation, including a relaxed green space where visitors can kick back and enjoy one of the Bogle’s delicious wines.
Full-bodied on the entry, aromas of black plum jam and toasty oak set the stage for what is to come. Vibrant boysenberries and luscious fruit are framed by serious tannins, while wisps of leather and vanilla seduce just enough. A final touch of acidity finishes the wine with a precisely balanced mouthfeel.
