"Offers hints of cinnamon on the nose, with well-spiced flavors of ripe pear and baked apple. The plush finish is kept lively by fresh acidity and a lingering savoriness. Drink now through 2019. 590,000 cases made. –KM " (WS)

"GOOD VALUE, More than once we have marveled at the value afforded by wines from this maker, and this nicely constructed, well-defined effort is simply without peer at the price. A lively, medium-full-bodied wine that smacks of fresh, fully ripe apples and subtle oak spice, it is continuous and convincingly varietal through and through, and it handily avoids the candied vagaries that plague so many of its inexpensive cousins. It is the genuine article and a well-made one at that, and it has been a very long time since we have tasted a ten-dollar Chardonnay that is as good as it is. Reviewed: October 2017" (CG)

"BEST BUY, The smoky oaky aromas and spicy peppery flavors of this medium-bodied wine are undeniable and definitely dominate whatever modest fruit flavors lie underneath. It's an assertive wine with a brash flavor profile." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Hand crafting wine is something Bogle winemakers have done for nearly 40 years now. With passion for both the art and science of making wine, they have created our 2016 Chardonnay using 50% barrel fermentation in new American oak barrels, sur lie aging, monthly batonage…all in an effort to create a delicious wine to grace your table.

Clarksburg Chardonnay’s signature apple and pear notes flourish in the incredible aromas and first sips of this wine. The rich, round entry is full of fruit, including touches of tropical pineapple and guava. The elegant and creamy mouthfeel wraps around the fruit and leads to spicy notes of nutmeg and toasty vanilla, left behind by over 8 months of aging in American oak. The finish lingers like the last bite of that buttery crème brule.
