Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

A juicy Gamay Nouveau ruby red, mouthwatering, and unique flavour profile with red berry fruit, pomegranate aril, cherry flesh, a hint of milky mocha chocolate. Light bodied, juicy and tart. Ready to enjoy. Released the third Thursday of November. Tasted Nov 2016. Rated 85/100.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

A Gamay made in the Nouveau style with moderate notes of black tea and cherry. The palate is light bodied with notes of cherry, leather, and milk chocolate. Each of those notes could seem alluring on their own but put together, it's not as enticing as it seems. Try pairing it with leftover Halloween candy... who knows?
