For years, Bogle winemakers have sought out vines ranging in age from 60 to 80 years old for our Old Vine Zinfandel. These gnarly headtrained and dry farmed pioneers produce low yields of small, concentrated clusters of fruit, producing incredibly intense and flavorful wines.
Head-trained, dry farmed vines planted by early pioneers of our state have stood the test of time. Producing small, concentrated clusters of grapes, these vines embody the true California spirit! It is these vines that Bogle winemakers seek to create our Old Vine Zinfandel. Often characterized by spice, this wine is no exception. On the nose, juniper, black pepper and spicy nutmeg awaken the senses. Garnets glitter in the glass, while flavors of cranberries and raspberries glisten on the palate. Lively ruby red fruits catch your fancy, all leading to a full and round finish after aging in 2-year old American oak for 14 months. Hints of marionberry pie and baking spices complete the wine, with a long and lingering finish.
