Seven Springs Vineyard Gamay Noir 2015

Gorgeous, vibrant light ruby color. Intriguing, varietally correct nose of strawberries, cranberry sauce, forest floor, and spicy pepper. I’ve always liked and enjoyed Gamay but this new breed is making me love it. Yes, this is certainly very Beaujolais like but it also has Oregon written all over it. Wild mushrooms, raspberries, dried herbs, and tart, tart cherry. This is a really fun Gamay to pop and pour. Grab a pizza and enjoy. — 3 days ago

Château Thivin

Clos Bertrand Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2014

Somewhat less fruity and more stony than other special cuvée Thivin wines I’ve had. Really transmits the granite soils. Still, very ripe crunchy pure cherry fruit is there. The elegance and liveliness of the 14s is there too. So pure and minerally. — 2 days ago

Great wine. Younger vines that godefroy and Chapelle and different exposition.

Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2014

Cherry,tart cherry on the nose. The palate is well balanced with a nice acid frame that goes far with a finish on raspberry or wild strawberry. The palate is packed with cherry and some tannins to give it a somewhat layer of complexity. Interesting subtle yet easy gamay. — 11 days ago

Domaine Pardon

Domaine Pardon Cuvee Tim Regnie 2015

Maybe I am just in the mood for Beaujolais Cru? This would be a fun wine to blind taste, because it really does have a lot to offer at sub $15. Medium tannin structure, concentrated flavors of blackberry cordial, bing cherries, red apples, flint smoke, green and black pepper corns, and a touch of fresh rosemary. Ample acidity, but some balance to it, with a slight evidence of Oak aging. Maybe it is due to this being a 2015, which has been a great vintage for Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Rhone. — 4 days ago

Sans Tra la la Touraine Gamay Noir 2016

Cru Beaujolais in Touraine. Carbonic fruit and wonderful terroir expressing mineral notes. Little to no funk with zero added sulphur. A pleasure to drink. — a day ago

Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2015

Waiting for the stinky sulphur, diaper nose to blow off... But there is promise in this glass for sure.

After triple decanting... Silky red fruits, meaty/game notes, perhaps a light metallic note at the end of the finish, all delicious but we enjoyed this bottle way too young.

Ribbon Ridge Gamay Noir

New year, new wine (no. 3): Fresh, young, sexy thang! Bright, juicy red fruit, floral, earthy, a nice little dash of baking spice, a surprising salinity (which is apparently a hallmark of Ribbon Ridge), and a finish that lingers for days. I want more of this. — 7 days ago

Château Thivin

"Reverdon" Brouilly Gamay

Dark crimson color with a fine transparent edge. 3 hours decanted throughout cooking and pairing with beef tenderloin. This is pretty with sharp acidity. Flavors of mint, tart cherry and baking spice. There is tannin for days to make this one for the ages. Great find at $20. — 2 days ago

Domaine Mee Godard

Passerelle 577 Morgon Gamay 2014

Has a structure that is more common to Burgundy than Beaujolais. Extended swirling brought out hints of earth and dark fruit. Minerals and crunchy fruit make an appearance in the mouth but for the most part they played hide and seek. Lots of promise here it just needs to lose its shyness. — 6 days ago

Domaine David-Beaupère

La Bottière Juliénas Gamay 2016

Superb cherry and licorice on the nose. Very appealing. Very yummy palate on cherry and licorice too. The acid backbone is there but a bit overwhelmed by this very generous fruit. A fruit bomb. Love it — 10 days ago
