Boheme Pinot Noir Taylor Ridge

BOHÈME Pinot Noir Taylor Ridge 2018

The Bohème Pinot Noir Taylor Ridge 2018 has an honest Burgundy-like savory-ness from start to finish. Wild red cherries, blood orange, bone broth, cracked peppercorns, cola, black tea and cooking herbs please the senses and take me on an olfactory journey. Is it Sonoma Coast? Is it Old World? Texturally Bohème Taylor Ridge Pinot is strong and fit with fine tannins and mouth-watering acidity. It’s young and shows it. A wonderful sensory exploration now for sure, yet you’re cheating yourself a bit by drinking it now. I suggest drinking 2024-2034. From Kurt Beitler, owner/winemaker of Bohème: Taylor Ridge Vineyard is […]

Boheme Pinot Noir Occidental Hills

BOHÈME Pinot Noir Occidental Hills 2018

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, […]

Boheme Chardonnay English Hill

Bohème Chardonnay English Hill 2017

The Bohème Chardonnay “English Hill” 2017 immediately grabs the nose with caramelly lemon, roast hazelnuts, bright green apple slices, freshly cut pears and a sqeeze of lime. In the mouth it’s both vibrant and voluptuous with all the aforementioned aromas translating to flavors with an extra hit of caramel and apple butter. The rich Bohème English Hill Chardonnay is full of vigor due to its core of cool-climate acidity ringing through. Yep, I’m a big fan of this wine. I would easily recommend it if it were $70, so at $49 it’s a crazy-good value. The numbers don’t “work” particularly […]
