Wine Review: Bogle 2009 California Pinot Noir

This wine has a cranberry hue. The wine has aromas of earth, strawberries and cherries, along with a bit of spice. The palate mirrors the nose with an addition of herbal notes integrated with the red fruit, earthiness and spice. This wine is what I call a "bang for the buck" wine. I think it would pair well with salmon, bruschetta with mushrooms topped with Fontina cheese that has been melted, and then sprinkled with crumbled bacon, pork roast, fried or roast chicken. I paired it with a piece of Mimolette cheese. The depth of flavor and saltiness of the cheese really brought out the red fruit flavors in this wine. Note: This wine was a sample provided by Bogle Winery SRP $11.00
