Obsessed. Tons of fresh strawberries on the nose. Some mushroom on the palate. Got this on sale at Schneider’s of Cap Hill — total steal. 🍓🍄

Floral nose, little bit of spice. Strawberry, raspberry, heavy cranberry. Light. Rounded tannins, solid finish.

Bright ripe cherry comes in about an hour after opening. Before that it's a barrage of earth and tannins. Quite nice summer wine.

Apparently the last vintage due to vineyard decimation from hail. But tons of high tone red fruit, cherry, bright acidity, everything I want gamay to be.

Light and fruity with notes of cherry, raspberry, and candy. However, had a pleasant dry finish. Mild tannin, very little acidity

For me this showed more Sangiovese than Gamay, but it was still pretty good on the Thanksgiving table. Decent heft & color, brooding nose of Earth, leather and darker fruit were deftly conveyed with juicy acidity. The subtle jamminess was only giveaway - otherwise this was a Chianti Classico
