La Boheme Act Four Syrah Gamay 2014

I am always a sucker for new things and wine is no exceptions. If I see an unusual bottle, grape variety, or blend then I am more likely than not to take the risk and buy it. I noticed the La Boheme Act Four Syrah Gamay 2014 on one of the bottom shelves at Dan Murphys and I thought to myself that I had never seen such a blend before (Gamay is the grape variety used in Beaujolais). I stopped to think what this would actually taste like and wondered if it was going to be some sort of strange lolly water. Since the bottle was only around $15 I thought I would take the chance and see what it was like and I am glad I did. It is a rather good blend that brings out the best of both grapes with the strengths of each variety complement the weaknesses of the other. The end result is certainly unusual, but it fills the role of a good food pinot at a price point much lower. I would say it was worth the try.


Price. $15
Value. $25

Edit. I see the price has gone up quite a lot (must be getting some attention) and is now selling for $22 a bottle at Dan Murphys.
