2007 Bogle Vineyards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., pH 3.62, $13, released March, 2009. From a family owned winery in Clarksburg, CA producing multiple varietals from its Delta vineyards, but having a good track record with value priced Pinot Noir as well. Aged 12 months in French and American oak. · A pretty solid wine for the fare featuring a rich core of black cherry and black raspberry fruit with underpinnings of exotic spices, dark chocolate, and smoke. The tannins are restrained and the finish is pleasingly fruity albeit a touch hot. Widely distributed. Reviewed September 19, 2009
