This is the winery’s first vintage of Gamay Noir. I have a question. Does anyone know of any other Napa winemaker producing Gamay? I would love to compare. Anyway, I found this one quite delicious and I look forward to many more vintages of this variety from Doug and Elias.
As much as I like Carneros Pinot Noir from the Sonoma side, I have hesitations about the Pinot that comes from the Napa side. (Hm…are there wine gangs?) I find that in many cases Napa PN is a little…crunchier, if you will? But in any event, I rather liked this one. So it just goes to show you it’s not necessarily all about terroir, but how a winemaker chooses to showcase the fruit as well.
