Tasting:

    Opened one-hour before drinking. Translucent, gorgeous dark ruby red color with the same color rim. Clearly identifiable barn-yard aroma. Very smooth, bright acidity, intense ripe cherry, cranberry, slight peppery spice and hints of licorice flavors that continued with tart, supple tannins in a fruity mouth-watering finish. WOW this was fresh and sumptuous Gamay wine and Vicky said it was “a glorious explosion of flavors in the mouth” and that says a lot for one who is usually only lukewarm on Beaujolais. Right from the first sniff this wine made a statement…FANTASTIC aroma that lasted through every pour, a HUGE quantity of elegant flavor and a finish that lingers and ends with bright acidity. Simply GREAT…it’s an OUTSTANDING Beaujolais and we look forward to having it again.
