Experience the luscious flavors and aromas of the 2020 Gamay from 7 Mountain Vineyard. The cool-climate conditions of the vineyard result in a concentrated flavor profile of perfectly ripe grapes. The bouquet offers intriguing hints of black pepper, ripe blackberries kissed by the sun, and a touch of sweet tobacco and leather. On the palate, indulge in elegant blackberries and wild raspberries picked at the peak of ripeness, accented by delicate notes of rosemary and thyme. Tangy cranberries and subtle spiciness add depth and complexity, leading to a velvety mouthfeel with gentle yet persistent tannins. A light to medium-bodied texture with zesty, mouthwatering acidity rounds out the palate, culminating in a long and satisfying finish with a touch of smoky oak and vanilla. This exceptional wine, aged 20 months in neutral oak barrels, is a testament to the unique terroir of the region and complexity of Gamay Noir wine.
