2018 La Bohème

Big, dark cherry and chocolate shavings lead into violet, cola and leather on the nose, followed by a rich palate of more cherry, black walnut, and rosemary. Dense and lingering, powerful yet silky.

“deep scents of cranberries, blueberries, forest floor and loads of spicy accents. The medium-bodied palate is silky and fresh, with loads of bright fruits and a long, spiced finish…”

“Spice-laced red and dark berry, cherry cola and floral pastille scents take on a smoky mineral quality with air. Shows a hint of musky earth on the palate, which offers appealingly sweet red and blue fruit, mocha and black tea flavors and a touch of allspice. Gains energy with air and repeats the floral note on an impressively long, gently tannic finish. 36% new oak.”
