Lively, surprisingly rich, but very bright with acidity. Tannins grip lightly. Fun and tasty wine.

A good showing for JPT, can be open or closed and this one was nice and open, fine knit and firm tannin, cool and deep red fruits.

Wow this is rich & hearty Morgon. Needs mucho air time, but after three hours fruit really came out- crushed cranberry, raspberry preserve, cherry jubilee, red/candied apple. Almost like a Sonoma Coast Pinot, but with the meaty masculinity of Gevrey-Chambertin. Pencil shavings, salami(Spam?), and dried up rose petals. More tannin than I've ever had on Gamay. "The gang of 4" delivers again!

Bright fruit, cherries, dusty tannins, not much depth but very high drink ability

Could easily fool some people into believing it's Pinot. Bright, pretty. Needs air.
