Lots of ripe dark cherry fruit over some nice BoJo granitic minerality. Seems a little disjointed in the mouth. Some heat and tannin are a bit too present. But there is decent acidity for a ‘15. Better with food.

Maybe I'm just too into a chilled Gamay. But I'd drink this darling over and again. Okay I would not pair with a green salad on its own but a salad plus a cheese plate plus pommes frites? For sure. Wish I'd brought a bottle to dinner at Cafe Stella though their Sicilian Nero d'Avola and Stolpman Syrah stood tall. This is the perfect balance of ripe alllllllmost but not quite jammy cherries and blackberries and green but nice enough tannins. It is low-ish for a red in alcohol (13%) and medium in acid and body. It's the perfect balance between "I want a serious wine" and "I want something to go with all the small plates we just ordered"...all over all good

Lively, bright red fruit. Tangy and mineral.
