Behind the Cork™ Wine of the Week

2014 Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel ($10)

Just having featured "Old Vine Zinfandel - Is it Better?" I thought it would be good to bring back a wine that was featured in this blog last year. This old vine Zinfandel comes from vines that are 60 to 80 years old. These old vines produce small, concentrated clusters of grapes that result in an incredibly rich and intense wine.  It has great dark fruit flavors and a bit of spicy notes from the use of two-year old American oak.
