Another wine from the Sip and Savour event. The grape is a clone of the Gamay Noir. The wine is dark in color (darker than you would expect) with an earty/herb nose. The nose was more like a Pinot Noir. On the mid pallet are some nice dark fruits coming through. More going on than a typical Gamay. There are some nice cherry, a little bit of sweetness on the mid pallet. It’s slightly dry on the medium finish. I would give it an 88-89. I think I will try and find a bottle of this one for a more in depth tasting. I enjoyed it. One of the highlights of the evening’s wines!
