Analysis

Chances are that your local grocery has the Bogle Pinot Noir on the shelf. Wine snobs frequently use the term "supermarket wines" in a derisive tone but we all have found ourselves looking for wine at the grocery. When there we want reliable wines offered at a fair price. Bogle makes very tasty wines sold at consumer friendly prices; a fine achievement in our book. This very charming and tasty Pinot is crafted from fruit sourced from Russian River Valley, Monterey, and the Clarksburg Delta. The result is in the glass. 90 points.

How to Enjoy

This lovely Pinot needs nothing more than a glass but it's great with sautéed mushrooms, braised beef, and roasted acorn squash.
