Dark rubies sparkle in the glass, enticing with first impressions of sweet summer herbs and hints of anise. Quickly followed by a burst of Bing cherry, the entry is full of rich, dense red fruits. Smooth and silky in texture, yet with a full mouthfeel, notes of baking spices and vanilla mocha envelope the fruit. One year of aging in American oak barrels leaves behind polished tannins and a lingering finish.

Although the Bogle family has been farming since the mid-1800’s, 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, the Bogle family’s years of hard work have developed into an impressive grape growing operation, as well as a nationally acclaimed winery.
