Gamay Noir

Sonoma Coast Gamay Noir 2016

Hard candy, watermelon Jolly Rancher flavors and a quirky pink grapefruit aroma (can’t believe I just wrote that but it’s undeniable). Whole clusters are bringing some intensity and spice to the table, amplifying the sense of volcanic minerality. A bit odd but seriously interesting. If this gets people to drink more Gamay it’s fine by me. — 7 days ago

La Fontenelle Chiroubles Gamay 2014

Wonderful fruit concentration, serious acidity and big league minerality. Aromas are somewhat reticent initially, but the palate is explosive, intense and persistent right from the get-go. Think raspberry, blood orange, Asian spice, old copper pennies. Already fairly well-aged, the tannin structure gives me confidence for excellent mid-term cellaring potential. Might be difficult to find in the US market, but consumers should buy with the utmost confidence- especially at this price point. Superb! — 5 days ago

El Dorado Gamay Noir 2017

Wild strawberry mixed with CA “garrigue” and spice. Infused, not extracted, gracious and joyful to gulp down with burgers and conversations about previous cellar tales. Thanks for sharing @Tom 'Sqomi' Inners — 3 days ago

Absolute Magnitude Gamay Noir 2015

Really fun to share this with @Ellen Clifford and hear about the winemaker, who sounds like a total boss. Carbonic in style (notes of Dr. Pepper I believe?) and lots of fun. — 21 days ago

Ribbon Ridge Gamay Noir

I usually tend toward Pinot Noir, but when I want something just a bit bolder, Gamay hits the spot. I have really been enjoying this 2015 vintage. — a day ago

Régnié Gamay 2016

Régnié doesn’t get much better than this. Intense minerality. Aromatics are high-pitched, flowery and redolent of tart red berries, crushed granite, fresh compost and peat. Bright, crunchy, laser-focused and lean on the palate with enough acidity to jump a motorcycle engine. — 8 days ago

If there was one redeeming thing that took place today (i.e. The day I got selected as a juror) it was that my Burgundy stems arrived. Cheers to immediately putting them to good use and to the commencement of 42 hours of Jury Duty 😵 — 9 days ago
