Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel, California, 2004
Immigrants imported cuttings to California more than a century ago. The fruit produces distinctive wines of extraordinary flavor and intensity. California is blessed with many historic Zinfandel vineyards. These grapes were first planted by European immigrants in the early 1900's and are still producing today. The old head-trained vines are unique because they produce a smaller crop of fruit that is unusually rich and concentrated. In selecting grapes from these old vines, we have handcrafted a wine that displays intense blackberry, black cherry, and raspberry flavors, wrapped in a smooth blanket of vanilla and oak. We at Bogle salute these old vineyards and those pioneers who brought their dreams and visions to California. Alcohol 14.5% by volume.
