2012 Bohème Taylor Ridge Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., 305 cases, $55. This vineyard is located on a bluff 4.8 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean at 915 feet elevation. Swan selection is planted in sandy loam Goldridge soils. Yields 2.15 tons per acre. Aged 20 months in once to three times used French oak barrels. · Moderately light reddish purple hue in the glass. The highly expressive nose offers a perfume of red cherry, cake spice, rose petal and sandalwood. Plenty of luscious cherry goodness engages the mid palate in a polished, elegantly style wine with refined tannins and integrated acidity. A compliment of baking spices is enmeshed. This is a very classy wine with pinpoint balance and a vivacious charge of cherry hanging on at the finish. Score: 93. Reviewed March 12, 2016 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2006 Bohème Taylor Ridge Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., 190 cases, $53. This vineyard is located on a bluff 5.3 miles from the Pacific Ocean at 715 feet above sea level. There is notable fog influence in late summer. This wine is sourced from a 2.7-acre plot planted to the Swan selection. Yields were 1.35 tons per acre. Kurt Beitler is the grower and winemaker. · Fragrant super ripe fruit smelling of raisins, soy and roasted nuts. The fruit was picked at an advanced stage of phenolic ripeness and the plush dark fruit tastes of raisins. Good mix of t n’ a. Well-crafted, but disappoints. Only in California!
