2013 Bohème Stuller Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., 264 cases, $53. Clones 115 and 667. Yield 0.95 tons per acre. 30% whole cluster inclusion. Aged 25 months in seasoned French oak barrels. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of oak-kissed black cherry lead the way for engaging layers of black cherry, pomegranate and blueberry fruit flavors. A hint of chile spice is among the swirl of spice accents. Tannic support is perfectly matched, acidity is nicely integrated, and a very long, seductively slick finish raises the spirits. An entirely charming and classy wine. Score: 94.

Clone 115 is planted in clay loam and 667 in gravelly hilltop soils. Yield 1.8 tons per acre. Aged 20 months in once to four times used French oak barrels. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. The nuanced aromatic profile satisfies, with scents of black cherry, sarsaparilla, pine needle and sandy loam. Pleasingly silky and slightly viscous on the palate which features mid weight dark red and black cherry, black raspberry and cola flavors with an earthy undertone. Opens nicely in the glass over time, displaying commendable harmony and some finishing length marked by uplifting acidity. Score: 92. Reviewed March 12, 2016 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2010 Bohème Stuller Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., 285 cases, $49. Vineyard is located at 1,209 feet elevation on a coastal ridge, 6.4 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Clones 115 and 667. Yield .99 tons per acre. Aged 2 years in neutral French oak barrels. From owner-vintner Kurt Beitler. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Cherry is the dominant scent on the nose with added compliments of forest floor and leaf. Earth-kissed cherry flavor with hints of raspberry and dark chocolate. Very mild tannins and easy to drink, but a little delicate for my taste on the attack and finish. Score: 88. Reviewed April 19, 2014 WINERY » ARTICLE »

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 WINERY » ARTICLE »
