Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel 2009

I enjoy many of Bogle’s wines.  They almost always deliver an incredible amount of value and taste for around $10.  I often recommend Bogle wines to friends as a great everyday wine that they can find in almost any grocery store.  Their current releases of Petite Sirah and Chardonnay are among my favorites.  I have never tried the Old Vine Zinfandel but the bottle caught my eye while I was in Trader Joe’s this past weekend.

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine

The Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel has an intense, fruit forward nose filled with jammy blackberry and dark cherry.  The wine has sweet flavors of blackberry, raspberry, and cherries with hints of tobacco and spice in the finish.  I miss the big spicy finish that I always look for in Zinfandel but it is still a decent wine for $9.99.  If you try a bottle, let me know what you think!

  1. Just finished the ’09 Bogle Old Vine Zin and found it a remarkable $10 wine.
    Your review is right on, but the big spicy finish is what keeps me away from Zin.
    This wine had just enough along with some tobacco and a hint of cocoa to swing me over to Zin’s again. Nice review!
