Deep glistening violet. Powerful, mineral-accented red/blue fruit scents are complemented by suggestions of incense and candied violet. Silky, energetic and appealingly sweet, offering palate-staining black raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors supported by a spine of juicy acidity. In an energetic style, showing impressive finishing thrust, smooth tannins and strong, mineral-dominated persistence. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, October 2019)

If I had to sum this wine (‘14) up in a word, it would be “fun”.

Had this with a steak, a nice combo. It has a nice spiciness but still some good fruit

Dry but soft and fruit forward. Drank with Greek inspired meal of chicken and beef kabobs, etc. Good pairing. This could easily be a go-to rose for me. Good with food and on its own. They say that gamay goes with a lot of food, especially summer picnic, so it wasn't too surprising that this was a good match for our meal. If you don't like gamay because of its fruitiness as a red wine, you might appreciate this drier embodiment. Purchased at Sunfish Cellars in Summer 2017 for $13, and was recommended by their staff.

Very nice medium bodied wine. Dry, lots of fruit, very drinkable.
