2016 La Bohème

With tart cherry, fir boughs, tea and sassafras on the nose, this wine has a lush and mouth-filling palate. It brims with black cherry and dried plum. Spicy notes of black pepper and anise lead to a long finish of dusty tannins.


93 Points, Vinous, 2019

“Deep vivid red. Powerful dark berry, floral pastille and succulent herb aromas are lifted by a smoky mineral element and a hint of peppery spices. Chewy and tightly focused on entry and then fleshier in the midpalate, displaying appealingly sweet boysenberry, black raspberry and spicecake flavors that deepen slowly…”

92 Points in Robert Parker

“The 2016 Pinot Noir la Boheme is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with a great open nose of warm black cherries and blackcurrant with touches of cardamom, cinnamon stick, dried leaves and forest floor. Light to medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with warm, spice-laced black fruits, framed with firm, fine-grained tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long with earth and spicy accents.”
