Bogle Vineyards Old Vine Zinfandel 2014, California 

My Rating 87 Points.   

Price $12. 

 

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of plums, blueberries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, smoke, chocolates, light vegetables, coffee, alcohol and graphite.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice long legs.

Fruity and dry on the palate with sweet raspberries, plums, licorice, oak, vanilla, earth, peppercorn, bitter vegetables, tobacco, peppercorn, espresso, chocolates and spices.

Medium finish with soft tannins and black pepper.

This is a nice Zinfandel from California. Drinking nicely now and good by itself or with food. A little lighter than I like, but very pleasurable. Balanced with little complexity.

Needs 30 minutes to open up properly, and show some complexity.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
