Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)

Wine Review: This dark red colored Gamay from Morgon is very good. It opens with a very fragrant strawberry jam bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is like the nose. It features ripe strawberry with notes of gentle minerality and a touch of red raspberry towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. If you love strawberries, you will love this wine. I would pair it with poached salmon filet. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Brooding aromas of dark berries with licorice and forest floor nuances. The palate is rich with blackberry and plum pudding flavors balanced by fresh acidity and a well-placed tannin backbone. The wine finishes as rich and layered as it begins. A serious yet versatile Cote du Py.
