Item Number: 17 20 282 12
Family owned Bogle vineyards has an amazing reputation for producing wines that show outstanding value. This is their Pinot Noir which they source from vineyards in Monterey County and the Russian River Valley as well as cooler vineyards in the Clarksburg Delta near the winery. All of these provide Pinot Noir that has good balance, bright fruit flavors and lively acidity. Fermented in temperature controlled tanks and aged for 10 months in French and American oak. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying "A strong, vibrant texture of crisp acidity and firm tannins energizes this flavorful and distinctive wine. Red cherry and raspberry aromas lead to crisp cranberry and cherry flavors. An appealing dry finish brings you back for another sip." Additionally, JustWinePoints.com felt this lively Pinot worthy of a 98 point score. Hard to get a better endorsement than that, especially at this price!
