Boheme 2017 'West Pole' Pinot Noir
Thirty-one Pinot Noir barrels from the Bohème single-vineyard program were selected for this inaugural vintage of West Pole Pinot Noir. Each component was estate-grown (including six Pinot Noir selections averaging 30% whole cluster fermentation) and aged 21 months in French Oak barrels. Notes: Starlike clarity with rosewood-mulberry hue. Slow-fired Burgundy toast aroma with black and red fruits: cranberry, huckleberry, hibiscus and Kirsch cherry. Dark fruits impress the palate, in hand with bergamot, sandalwood, clove, roasted chestnut and elderflower. Fine and abundant tannins follow—the wine is structured and versatile—pairing beautifully with cheese and vegetarian dishes, poultry, lamb and beef.
