As the first red wine bottled by our family in 1978, Petite Sirah has come to be synonymous with the winery. For many customers, Petite Sirah was the first Bogle wine they tried. Today, so many years later, Bogle is the largest producer of Petite Sirah in the world.
Handpicked from our estate Quick Ranch on Merritt Island, just a few miles down Elk Slough from our homestead, the grapes for this wine were selected for their quality and concentration. Dark, tightly formed clusters created intense flavors and set themselves apart for this special commemorative wine.
After primary and secondary fermentations, the wine was placed in French and American oak barrels where it aged for over 24 months. Additional time aging in the bottle allowed the components of the wine to come together seamlessly.
A nose of lavender and violets leads to huge blackberry and marionberry flavors on the palate. Silky, rich, luscious, and luxurious, this wine finishes with touches of toasty spice and voluptuous caramel, essences of both barrel types left behind. A perfect food wine, pairings are pretty limitless, and the wine could cellar for 20 years.
Bottled in a limited-edition silk screened bottle and finished with gold wax, this wine can currently only be found at our tasting room in Clarksburg.

The Bogle family has been farming in the Sacramento River Delta for six generations. The first 20 acres of vines were planted in 1968 near the small farming community of Clarksburg. Today Bogle Vineyards farms over 1,500 acres of wine grapes in the Clarksburg AVA and other select California winegrowing regions including Old Vine Zinfandel from Lodi and Amador and Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir from the cool Monterey and Russian River Valley AVA’s. The Bogle family’s deep respect for the land and generational commitment to putting consistent, honest value in the bottle is rooted in one over-arching philosophy: the family is involved in every detail of the business. And they are some of the nicest folks you’ll ever meet!
