Wine Reviews

Bogati 2012 Black Label Club Petit Verdot (Virginia) ~ Wine Enthusiast

An amalgam of pastry crust, mint, and mixed wild-berry aromas lead on the nose. Medium to full in body, this sports firm, brittle tannins and lax acids. It finishes with traces of vanilla and dried herbs. —A.H. (6/01/2014)

 

Bogati NV Collection I Red (Virginia) ~ Wine Enthusiast

Notes of licorice, dried rose, spiced cherry and sweaty saddle leather mark the nose of this red blend. It has high-pitched flavors, and the tangy acids and medium amounts of chalky tannins give the wine traction. – A.H. (4/01/2014)

 

Bogati NV Black Label Club CMC Reserve Red (Shenandoah Valley) ~ Wine Enthusiast

Juicy, youthful raspberry and cherry aromas come with tobacco and dried grass details. This wine has a broad, malleable texture and a floral flavor that make it quite quaffable.  — A.H.  (12/31/2013)

 

Bogati 2009 Collection I Red (Virginia) ~ Wine Enthusiast

Sweet red cherry fruit melds with whiffs of graham cracker crumb and leather on this ripe, full bodied red from Bogati. There’s a thin vein of green that trails throughout, but the palate is nicely structured with a dose of warm pepper notes and mouthcoating tannins on the finish.  — A.I. (12/1/2011)

 

Bogati 2010 Cabernet Franc (Virginia) ~ Wine Enthusiast

While a tad pulpy and overripe on the nose, there’s a purity to the dark red fruit on the palate of this Virginia Cab Franc that penetrates amidst notes of fresh green leaves and herbs. Full bodied in style with just a hint of green bramble on the finish.  — A.I.  (12/31/2011)
