Sudective, rich and full, everything you could want in a Zinfandel! This is made from old vine Zinfandel which gives plenty of concentration of flavour but is particularly well made by a key family in California.

The Bogle family has been farming in the Clarksburg region for six generations and their roots date back to Captain AJ Bogle in the 1870s. However, it wasn’t until 1968 when the next generation Bogle family members planted close to 90 hectares of vines in their home ranch and continued to grow grapes for other wineries. They set up their own family label in 1978 and the winery a year later. Throughout this time, they have passed down a strong work ethic and dedication to quality. The success of Bogle over the years is rooted in the day-to-day involvement of the Bogle family.
As per the California Appellation Program, the Bogle Winery not only uses grapes grown in 1800 acres of its own estate, but also sources grapes grown from other neighbouring wineries. Grapes are sourced from low yielding vines ranging in age from 60 to 80 years old. They’re all dry farmed and have no irrigation which gives them small concentrated clusters of grapes which reach a high degree of richness.
90% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah. Each plotis vinted separately, allowing them to preserve their unique character. They follow a rigorous grading system which allows consistent quality year after year. The wine is aged in small oak barrels for 12 months before bottling.
Silky and luscious, this is a big but perfumed wine with raspberry, boysenberry, black pepper, toasted oak, vanilla and pipe tobacco on the palate all coming through. There’s a little herbaceous note too with juniper coming through.
Great with venison other more gamey dishes as well as blue cheese.
