Weekly Wine Deal: 2016 Bogle Cabernet Sauvignon
Regular Retail: $11.49
Deal Price: $9.49 a bottle or an additional 10% off a case
Bogle wines sitting on a shelf at Barriques are a rare thing. That wasn’t always so. I remember the Bogle Petite Syrah occupying a regular spot on the Wall of 100 for years. During the early 2000's though, the quality dropped in their quest to occupy space in every grocery store from here to eternity and, outside of the occasional Phantom Red that might make an appearance, Bogle and Barriques were splits-ville. We were predictably skeptical when the 2016 Bogle Cab landed on our desks. We tried it, twice in fact, just to make sure our thoughts about it were right the first time. It was great and it made for an easy decision to buy a pile of it and feature it as this weeks email deal. The Bogle family, which after 50 years of farming their land, is still managing the winery day-to-day, has made a huge sustainability push and are not only a California Certified Sustainable Winery, but in 2018 the were awarded the Green Medal Leader Award, which recognizes the vineyard that best demonstrates environmentally sound, socially equitable and economically viable sustainability practices. Nice work and certainly makes it that much easier of a wine to recommend to you.
The 2016 Bogle Cabernet Sauvignon displays a more inky, slightly opaque purple color in the glass with a vibrant red rim. It has a pleasantly rich nose of blackberry, mulberry, cassis and blueberry fruits, framed by notes of cocoa and spices. The palate is very well balanced and full of red berry fruits, red currant, cherry, and backed with a peppery spice and tobacco leaf. The velvety touch of this Cabernet works well to just enjoy in the glass, yet can be paired up with a teriyaki seared flank steak, roasted Muscovy duck breast with a cherry glaze or beef chili.
