2020 Old Vine Zinfandel, Bogle Vineyards
It’s now nearly 50 years since father and son Chris and Warren Bogle established their first vineyard on eight hectares of land near Clarksburg in California. While the Bogle estate has since expanded to cover 14 different sites in the cooler areas of the Delta region near Sacramento, the boutique philosophy embraced from the outset still continues.
Harvested from 40-80 year old vines and matured in American oak for 10 months.
Californian Zinfandel is one of the world's most underrated big reds and this version is silky and luscious, perfumed with raspberry and boysenberry, with black pepper, toasted oak and pipe tobacco on the palate. This wine is best partner venison well along with other more gamey dishes.
