Violet color. Aromas of ripe blackberries, pomegranate, black pepper, and dried herbs with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a seamless, medium-length charcoal finish with coarse tannins and moderate oak flavor. A solid red that’s easy to pair with.

Gamay

Wine Glass Burgundy.jpg
Serve in a Burgundy Wine Glass
Gamay is the "other" red in Burgundy, well behind Pinot Noir in reputation. It is related to Pinot Noir, but is higher in acidity with very soft tannins and pronounced, distinctive grapey flavors. It is most famous bottled as Beaujolais; and Beaujolais Nouveau, the release of the first wine from the Northern Hemisphere, has done much to ensure its being widely consumed every November at tables around the world. Fresh, fruity, and easy drinking, Gamay is the quintessential red quaffer. While it is grown here-and-there in the New World, Gamay is largely a European specialty.
