Bogle winemakers have sourced fruit from the best growing regions in California for the varietal. The terroirs of the cool Russian River Valley, coastal Monterey hills and the unique Clarksburg Delta all grow fruit of character and distinction. Combined, the resulting wine is elegant, classic Pinot Noir.Floral notes of violets and fragrant strawberries resonate throughout this wine, while touches of green tea add complexity and nuance. The sophisticated mouthfeel is vibrant with layers of cherry fruit, yet balanced by comforting leather and pipe tobacco. A combination of French and American oak makes quite an impression, leaving lingering earth tones and graceful tannins behind.
Wine Enthusiast 91 - "A tower of tannin shapes this deep-colored and ripely fruity wine into an awesome drink. Layers of fine tannins pile up to make a firm, thick texture that supports lots of deep berry flavors and cleans the palate as you sip. It will make a good match with grilled and roasted beef, lamb or game. Best Buy"

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.
