Pretty rich and serious Beaujolais for ~$24. Dark cherry, mushroom, damp soil, and showing lots of youth. Definitely needs some time to open up. Worked well with the rich meal. Happy Easter!

Give this a moment to open. Initial macerated black cherry/plum and damp earth, bloomed into fresh raspberries and thyme. This is a big body beauj! Persistent salty tannin, cooked oyster mushroom. A touch green/crunchy with big white pepper & violet florals!

It’s been a tough day in NYC. We lost one of the greats in public media. Feels weird posting a wine note—but he loved the juice. So reflecting on the his can-do joy with this young, lively bottle. ❤️

Clearly my wine fridge destroyed the label. 😒 But this is quite tart and fruity. Lots of yum. Touch of funk. Well done for entry level Bojo.

Sour cherry, raspberry, rustic barnyard, tannins almsot non-existent, but some lovely sandy texture. Subtle but bursting with black pepper and light funk.

Other vintages of this wine have been fantastic. This one is just ok.
