Gamay, Pinot Noir

Chehalem Wines 'Ridgecrest Vineyards' Gamay Noir 2015 Review

A round style of New World Gamay, this Willamette cuvée has soft, fresh cranberry and red cherry fruit, complemented by freshly-turned earth and slight tobacco nuances. While fresh, it lacks the zing and zip of Beaujolais, making it a good crossover for Pinot Noir lovers.
