Agree completely w/Reptibark. While $40 isn't cheap, this is one of the finest QPR's I've drank in years. This punches way beyond its weight. Charming, gamey nose. Full and rich, despite being "only Gamay!" Deep, rich purple color and a full, velvety mouthfeel to back it up. Perfect acidity to match a number of dishes: I have had this with both a Teriyaki Stir Fry Chicken, and a Wild Alaskan roast Salmon - each time, this wine has knocked it out of the park. I don't know that I will be able to save any bottles for the CT estimated peak drinking window!
Outstanding. Only the second vintage of this wine that I've ever had but it is such a treat to get to taste it. Notes of blueberry pie, blackberry sauce, kirsch, curry and spices. A wonderful wine that gives so much for such a reasonable price tag.
