The Bohème Pinot Noir Occidental Hills comes from an undisclosed vineyard farmed by Kurt Beitler. The site’s particularly cool micro-climate allows for extended hang time, resulting in a nicely developed, ripe and beautifully balanced Pinot Noir. Ripe red cherries, brown pie spices, anise, blueberres, black tea and cola flavors are generous and expressive even in this wine’s relative infancy. Either drink now or hold for 10+ years: either way you’re a winner here.

From Kurt Beitler, owner/winemaker of Boheme: “The components of this reserve coastal cuveé include six Pinot Noir selections grown on three distinct soils. Averaging 34% stem inclusion, the fermentation lots underwent hand punch-down treatment, then aged 22 months in 17% new French Oak cooperage.”

Not all wine is created equal.
