Bow and Arrow Gamay 2019

Willamette Valley, Oregon, United StatesBow & Arrow is a tiny husband and wife winery based in NW Portland since 2010. Scott and Dana Frank source grapes from across the Willamette's top organic / biodynamic vineyards. This vintage sources gamay from the Hughes Hollow and Walnut Ridge Vineyards in the Willamette Valley. After a native ferment and semi-carbonic maceration, this ages for 10 months in neutral oak barriques before bottling unfined, unfiltered, and with minimal tannins. A pierce of potent VA and gentle spritz opens this lighter red, leading into raspberry, crunchy plum, and sprightly, crunchy acidity on the slight 12.5% palate. Tannins are soft and downy. This very naturalist gamay is best taken with a chill and current consumption.Tasted: 17 January 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 42.00 private wine shops Producer: Bow & ArrowDistributors: Massey Wines & Spirits Ltd.
