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.
“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.”
