Bogle Pinot Noir 2012

Because Pinot Noir is known to generally be a good accompaniment for a holiday turkey, I did a little advance tasting several weeks ago.  This Pinot was on sale at my local grocery store, so I decided to see about it.

Vineyard: Bogle
Wine:  Pinot Noir
Vintage:  2012
Appellation:  California
Price: $9.99

Notes:  The color was a medium ruby.  On the nose I caught scents of berries, rubber, pine, and … a touch of wet dog.  I’m not kidding.  Anyway, It was light-bodied with high acidity and moderate tannins.  Alcohol was at 13.5%.  On the palate I tasted rubber, pepper, red berries and a hint of pine.  I’m not sure I’d pair this with your typical holiday turkey, but I think it would be a good match for a gamey fowl — duck or maybe goose.

    • Thanks for the input. Haven’t had all their offerings here where they are fairly ubiquitous. Will have to do so! It’s true they are no E&J Gallo, but they sell over 850,000 cases of wine a year.
