90 Point Cali Zin!-Jack Tipple’s Weekly Wine Picks 9/12/18-9/19/2018
Winemaker’s Notes: Light, green-tinged gold. Fresh melon, peach and kiwi aromas are complemented by jasmine and white pepper. Juicy, tightly wound pit fruit and honeydew flavors. Delivers a lot of juicy, refreshing fruit and comes off almost weightless on the long, intensely spicy finish.

Winemaker’s Notes: Greeting you with sun-ripened raspberries and freshly ground white peppercorns on the nose, this Zinfandel is saturated with flavors of red berries and cranberries. Laced with a hint of savory herb in the background, the traditional tones of juniper lead to a full and ripe finish, while 12 months of aging in two year old barrels wraps the wine in spicy oak and a touch of vanilla wafer. Pairs well with grilled sausages with caramelized onions and peppers, tandoori chicken, and gorgonzola cheese.
90 Points Wine Enthusiast: Another great value from Bogle, this wine is very polished and smooth. Blackberry and blueberry flavors abound on the full-bodied palate, with fine-grained tannins. There are no rough edges, just wonderful fruitiness and light salt-and-pepper spices.
