"Deep violet color. Displays candied red berry, smoky mineral, potpourri and star anise qualities on the incisive nose. Juicy and penetrating in the mouth, offering mineral-accented raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of botanical herbs. Finishes spicy and very long, with lingering florality and harmonious tannins." -- Josh Raynolds
Varietal: 100% Gamay
Minimal SO2 prior to bottling
Crafted using grapes from my oldest vines (over 70 years old), this wine is particularly well-structured and velvety with beautiful aromatic complexity.
