Blue Mountain Estate Cuvée Gamay Noir 2018

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis bigger, darker, smoky gamay is from the newly created Estate Cuvée tier, from 11-29 year old estate vines and a mix of clones 358, 509, and 789. After a native ferment, this aged for a year in French oak barrels and puncheons. If you didn't see gamay on the label, you might think this is syrah, with all its wild, black-fruited meatiness, smoked black pepper, and waves of reduction. With some air, and a chill, you note the dark raspberry, cherry swirling underneath. Still, this is the un-gamayest gamay I've had from Blue Mountain.Tasted: 07 February 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.00 winery direct, private wine shops AB 26.95 private wine shops Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
