2015 Ridgecrest Vineyard Gamay Noir
When we think of a great Gamay vintage, this is exactly what we want. Deep purple in hue with black fruit galore and chocolate-coated blueberries. The spice factor rivals that of a Beaujolais Village Gamay, showing five-spice and peppercorns with an earthy, wild, cherry cola and gamey accent nose. Cocoa, Italian plums, dark roses and a bright clean acidity bring up the finish. This is a perfect food-friendly red, ready for a slight chill and a summer BBQ, or standing up to a steak and fireside winter dining.
