Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Expect notes of cedar, black fruits, spice and herbs on the nose. The palate is elegant, and offers a nice complexity and depth to the fruit along with well-integrated and nicely balanced tannins and acidity. Expertly made and tremendously well-priced wine that really over-delivers on all counts. My note: Savoury, meaty and cedar notes with full-bodied goodness.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled meats.

Reviews and Ratings

Sarah Tracy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I need to preface this review by saying that I do not drink Californian wines, not because I think they are less quality at all but rather because here in Nova Scotia you will pay an arm and a leg for a decent Cali wine.

That said, in this lovely Maritime province of ours you can expect to see this bottle sitting around $20 - $25 (Premier Wines & Spirits) which doesn’t break the bank and makes for a great gifting/ Friday night bottle. Now on to the good stuff, what does it taste like? Well it is like someone punched you in the mouth with a plum and a fist full of peppercorns. In other words, it’s juicy and vivacious with a medium body. Enough soft tannin to give the bottle structure balanced by enough sweetness that this would pair well with the most charbroiled of steaks. I would have to call this a crowd pleaser and you should keep it in mind next time you’re invited to the mother in-laws’ for dinner. Score: 90

Please check out Bogle Vineyard’s website for their portfolio. There is some delicious stuff coming out from that family.
