2008 Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel

Sticking close to home tonight with another great wine from the folks over at Bogle Vineyards in the little town called Clarksburg. The 2008 Old Vine Zinfandel is going great with the homemade Turkey soup and some fresh French Bread.

Picked up the new Gaslight Anthem 7" on Black Friday, along with a new 7" from Tom Petty which has 2 outtakes from the Damn the Torpedoes sessions. Now Damn the Torpedoes is one of my all time favorite albums, so I was thrilled to get these songs on the Juke. They sound great alongside the other 7"s from that album:

Don't Do Me Like That" b/w "Casa Dega
Don't Do Me Like That" b/w "Century City UK 7"
Something Else" (Live) b/w "Stories We Could Tell" (Live) UK 7"
Refugee b/w/ It's Raining Again
Here Comes My Girl b/w Louisiana Rain

Here's the Wine Propoganda from the Website.


Head-trained and dry farmed vines continue to be the source for Bogle’s Old Vine Zinfandel. These gnarly old vines produce concentrated fruit of unsurpassed quality and intensity. This full-bodied vintage shows itself with rich black raspberry notes that round out in the mouth, accompanied by the scents of summer fruit jam bubbling on the stove. Juniper berry and cinnamon stick join the spiciness of red and black peppercorns as they integrate with the supple fruit and lead toward the finish. Toasty oak and cloves are the perfect finishing touch.


This is the perfect wine to pair with everything from rich and unique dishes, to your favorite barbeque or weeknight take out! Enjoy!
