Thacher Shell Creek Vineyards Highlands District Valdiguié 2018 Review

Love Pinot Noir and Beaujolais, but looking to step outside the wine box? This is your new new. It was once called Napa Gamay, but is actually from southern France. But what's important is that it's awesome. Bright berry fruit with vibrant acidity and slight soil and cinnamon vibe are all in your face and balanced as all get-out. Chill this bottle down a bit, and sip it slightly chilled with good friends and some legit nibbles, like local cheese and meats, and you'll be coming back to this wine ...  often.
