2017 Ridgecrest Vineyard Gamay Noir
Ribbon Ridge AVA
This Gamay is not for the timid. On the nose, this wine shifts dramatically and quickly with initial aspects of tart red fruit like raspberry and cranberry move to a heartier red jam and cherry cordial. The nose then transitions to darker notes of violets before evolving yet again to hints of white pepper and clove. On the palate, it is bright with a strong acid backbone that accentuates subtle tannins. Try serving our Gamay Noir slightly chilled for a fresh, thirst-quenching red.
