Blue Mountain Estate Cuvée Gamay Noir 2019

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBlue Mountain has taken gamay seriously for awhile now, as evidenced by the 12-30 year old vines at their estate. It seems like they've really honed a house style here. This wine will be familiar to those that tasted the 2018 vintage. It's flinty and savoury with a faint hint of oak after aging in older French barriques and puncheons. But this vintage brings brighter fruit to the glass, led by spiced black raspberry, making this really attractive and seamless. It's juicy and fresh, so easy to enjoy now, but the relatively structured style means the best is still to come.Tasted: 07 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.00 winery direct, private wine shops AB 26.95 private wine shops Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
