Wine Wednesday: Bogle Chardonnay

There are a few vintners that I rely on for consistent quality and low prices. The Bogle Winery is one of them. In fact, I can't think of ever having a bottle of Bogle, regardless of the year or varietal, that I didn't like.

This 2007 Bogle Chardonnay was just what the doctor ordered this past Sunday. During a rainy day of appetizers and movie rentals, sipping this Chardonnay by the fireplace was the perfect compliment. This light golden straw colored wine, has a fragrant fruit aroma with a hint of black pepper. I could taste apples and apricots, with just a hint of butter. And the finish was crisp and clean.

Bogle isn't the best wine out there, but it is one of the most consistent good wines available. I know that no matter where I go, I'll be able to find a Bogle for around $10 or less, and will be quite happy with it.

Rating: 3/5; One of the best values out there, I'd be happy with a Bogle anytime, anywhere.

Price: Approx $10

On a side note, I wanted to share this video with you from You Tube. It's an amazing machine that with a combination of gears, lever, and pullies when cranked, will open and pour a bottle of wine. In find it so remarkable because it doesn't use any modern technology -- it really is a piece of art.
