La Bohème was planted using cuttings from vines selected for small cluster size and intense flavors, hallmarks of the world's finest Pinot Noirs. We prune and cluster-thin La Bohème heavily to limit yields and to maximize ripening and flavor concentration. All of Elk Cove's delicate Pinot Noir fruit undergoes the same gentle handling through our gravity flow system. This allows us to achieve the elegance, texture and luscious quality that are the hallmarks of exquisite Pinot Noir. Fruit from the La Bohème vineyard is fermented in small, temperature controlled steel tanks, hand punched down twice daily then aged for ten months in 50% new French oak. Our winemaking team then selects the very best barrels to represent the silky, lush flavor profile that exemplifies La Bohème pinot noir.

Wine AdvocateFrom vines planted in 1985 that tend to produce small clusters and small berries, the 2014 Pinot Noir la Boheme has a more broody and introspective nose than its peers: blackberry and wild hedgerow, tightly wound at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, the 15% whole cluster lending a subtle forest floor note, good density in the mouth with firm backbone on the finish. This deserves 3-4 years in bottle before you reach for the corkscrew, but it will be worth your patience.

Wine EnthusiastStill wrapped up tight, as are most of the 2014s from Elk Cove, this offers juicy fruit flavors of pomegranate and raspberry, supported by fresh acidity that promises some years of aging potential. This harmonious, flavorful wine should be drunk from 2018-2030.

Wine SpectatorFirm and chewy, with cedar and licorice overtones to the dark berry notes at the lean core, persisting into the finish. Best after 2018. 700 cases made.
