Gamay

This is everything you would expect from the California counterpoint to Beaujolais. Delicate, effusively aromatic and effeminate. Bright strawberried fruit with subtle stemmy, herbaceous spice. Charming, elegant and utterly gulpable.

The clusters are left whole and started by carbonic maceration, which lends its distinctive high tone appeal but eventually crushed by foot and finished whole cluster for skin contact and extraction. Pressed to neutral barrique for a short 6 month elevage and bottled young to preserve delicate aromatics.
