Lurid violet colour. Intense mentholated violet and strawberry nose with similar and smooth entry, with lots of cracked pepper, transitioning into good lemon squirt minerally lift. Still somewhat primal. Will show its best in a year and last for at least 4 more. BC's best Gamay
Enticing nose of raspberry and cherry and baking spice.Great. The mouth doesn't live up to the nose, but it is still quite good. This is a finesseful wine, elegant with it's upfront red fruit followed by a dash of nutmeg.What is there is rather intense, sadly there needs to be a bit more complexity to round out this wine. The lively acidity is slightly more pronounced on the finish, which is also a little bitter. Med finish. Pretty good gamay. We poured and drank this wine, and I find (an hour later as I write my notes) that air didn't do this wine many favors. Pop and pour. Given the vibrant fruit and acidity, this wine should hold another few years easily.
