Bogle Zinfandel Old Vine 2005 wine review by (PB)


We had this Zin after the Four Vines previously blogged--

It had a markedly diminished bouquet compared to the Four Vines with a palate that is on the sweeter side but with big flavors of dark fruit with some Zin character. After some air time, the wine opens to a peppery and somewhat shallow wine especially compared to the Four Vines.

Everyone liked this wine okay but preferred the Four Vines by far. Raise a glass of either but at $11.50 the Four Vines was not only a better tasting wine it was a better value!
