2021 Mayer Gamay
All whole bunch, all day long. Once was Roundstone Vineyard (now in Rising), now with Dixons Creek (de Bortoli) vineyard.
Mellow, gentle expression, quite a bit of ripe, red berry fruit on offer, a touch of hazlenut spread, some game meat, some general minerally character. Lively to taste but spreads itself beautifully and silky across the palate, so relaxed, kind of formless but this wrap of pleasure. Very copacetic. Drink 2021 - 2025.
