Oak Bay Vineyard 2011 Gamay Noir - 85pts
Availability: Direct from winery here
Date Tasted: October 2nd, 2012
Tasting Notes: Bright, spicy and tangy, this Gamay Noir, with its light tannins, high acid and rustic red fruit profile, makes a food-friendly addition to your dinner table when paired with roasted meats of the lean variety; turkey, chicken and pork tenderloin. On its own you may find the acid overwhelms the fruit and body on the palate, diminishing the length of the finish. Pleasant aromas of sweet black cherry, raspberry skins, licorice, dried cranberry and peppermint will delight no matter how it's served. Enjoy this well priced Gamay in its youth. Drink 2012-2015.
