2006 Bohème Stuller Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

15.5% alc., 120 cases, $53. This vineyard is located on a ridge top 6.4 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Aged 17 months in 50% new French oak barrels. · Raspberry, blackberry and current aromas with slightly roasted flavors. Not as over ripe as the Taylor Ridge bottling but still a little raisiny. Huge, succulent core of dark fruits with plenty of tannins. Not a wine for sissies. Tried it with dinner and it was too hot (alcoholic) to compliment the fare. This is a sipping wine, not a table wine. Reviewed May 7, 2009
