2018 Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel


Saturday Night with College Football on the TV, and a big plate of Spaghetti on the table, and next to it, a bottle of California Old Vine Zinfandel. The game was great, as was the Spaghetti, and the bottle of 2018 Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel. Its a good way to enjoy a fall evening, with Football, Pasta, and Vino!

The Bogle is rich and jammy, with the smell of a summertime berry patch. The flavors broadcast Blackberry and Black Raspberry in a blast at your senses, and trail off into toasty tannins, which cut right through Spaghetti, or any other spicy sauced fare! The alcohol content is 14.5%, and Norm’s score is 88.

A bottle of Bogle is a perfect match for Spaghetti or a hearty Beef Stew, as well as most grilled meats, including BBQ. Don’t forget, “Old Vine means Good Wine!”

Score: 88

Price: $11-$15
