2016 Ridgecrest Vineyard Gamay Noir
Ribbon Ridge AVA
Aromatically, the Gamay quickly dives into bright cranberries, cherries and raspberries with back aromas of leather and pepper. The palate is superbly balanced between the naturally bright acid Gamay Noir seems to encompass and the delicate long-lasting, yet grippy tannins that developed during fermentation. As a whole, this wine seems energetic and playful with a vein of seriousness you cannot ignore. Drink now as is, slightly chilled or watch it evolve being laid down. It will not disappoint at any stage.
