A MA ZIng...
Classic Amarone, a 90-pt. Malbec & a 91-pt. Old Vine Zin.
2015 Vintage | 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Negrara/Rossignola
Highly extracted. Reminiscent of plums, figs, almonds, black pepper, brown spice. Complex with flavours that all come together harmoniously. The ripe sweet fruit is beautiful on the palate, but finishes dry. Drinking well now, although with big tannins.
2018 Vintage | 100% Malbec
Marked blue and violet tones typical of Malbec. Complex black fruit and rose floral aromas typical of the Vista Flores vineyard in a cooler year. Concentrated palate, supple tannins and persistence on the finish. Nine months in French and American oak.
Vistaflores vineyard is at an altitude of 3428’ above sea level, a height which helps yield full balanced fruit flavours and smooth tannins. This wine currently benefits from being allowed to 'air' for 30 mins. before drinking. Will age nicely.
2017 Vintage | 100% Zinfandel - Certified Green & Certified Sustainable
Head-trained, dry farmed vines planted by early pioneers of in the state have stood the test of time. Producing small, concentrated clusters of grapes, these vines embody the true California spirit! It is these vines that Bogle winemakers seek-out to create their Old Vine Zinfandel.
Often characterized by spice, this Zin is no exception. On the nose, juniper, black pepper and spicy nutmeg awaken the senses. Garnets glitter in the glass, while flavours of cranberries and raspberries captivate the palate. Its full, long, lingering round finish is from aging in 2-year old American oak for 14 months.
