WTN: Whistling Past The Graveyard

2018 Kutch Pinot Noir Graveyard Block Bohan Vineyard - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (1/16/2021)
I did not know (or had not been paying sufficient attention) until the 2018s were being released that Jamie was making a specific parcel wine from Bohan. Curiosity got the best of me, so I grabbed a few bottles. Huh. Wish I had grabbed a few more. Bohan had not previously done a lot for me, but this is really grabbing me. I enjoyed it on night one, but this note is from night two, and the wine is positively singing. Floral aromatics are just pouring out of the glass. The fruit is prominent but simultaneously reserved. Structure is at the same amplitude as the fruit, so balance for age is there. It's layered, with herbal elements coming through from the mid-palate. Falstaff has been my favorite Kutch Pinot for a long time, but this could put up some stiff competition.
