Sometimes trying to select a wine can be mind boggling, but Bogle Vineyards (California) pours up a great sip of your favorite varietal without breaking the bank. Where I purchased them (Spec’s Liquor Stores) they were $12.00 or under. Featured are six styles that generally most people will reach for – Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Old Vine Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Try pairing the Sauvignon Blanc with Mixed Greens with Grilled Chicken, Apples, Craisins and Pine Nuts or Sun Dried Tomatoes, Roasted Garlic and Cheese Platter; the Chardonnay with Sweet Corn Soup or Whole Cooked Lobster; the Pinot Noir with Salad Niçoise or Grilled Quail with Mixed Mushrooms and Cipollini Onion Ragout; the Old Vine Zinfandel with Grilled Buffalo Strip Steak or Penne Pasta with Sausage and a Trio of Peppers; the Merlot with Steak Salad with Avocados, Cherry Tomatoes and a Honey Mustard Dressing or Coq au Vin; and the Cabernet Sauvignon with Beef Tenderloin with a Port Wine, Shallot Sauce or Blue Cheese Risotto with Beef Tenderloin and Caramelized Onions.
