2019; Wow, what a wine! So consistent with 2018 notes, but more expressive! Decanted 90m.

Nose has cut strawberry, ripe raspberry, dry chalk, baking spice and light alcohol. Palate has ripe cherry, fresh raspberry, dried black cherry and dried cranberry sprinkled with allspice.

Hits all the check marks of a beautifully crafted Beaujolais: vibrant/deep fruit with a little iron and carbonic smoke

Nose has cut strawberry, ripe raspberry, dry chalk, baking spice and light alcohol.

Palate has ripe cherry, fresh raspberry, dried black cherry and dried cranberry sprinkled with allspice.

Decanted ~2.5h, a young wine that would appreciate a few more years in the bottle. Tonight it paired successfully with homemade burgers from a local farmer in Columbia Co. NY (Kinderhook Farm).

Happy Memorial Day to all, especially those who have come before me to protect the freedom we enjoy in the USA, Thank you. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²
