Chateau Des Charmes 2012 Gamay Noir (Niagara-On-The-Lake) Niagara Peninsula - Ontario

Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $13.95
Alcohol: 13%
Production: 1991 cases
Date Tasted:  January 21st, 2015

Tasting Notes: A raw, in-your-face Gamay Noir that smells and tastes (rather specifically) like a handful of crushed, slightly under-ripe, black cherries soaked in POM Wonderful juice. Beyond the fruit lies layers of earthy flavours and sweet'n'spicy liqueur notes. Tannins are mild - it is the bright acidity that frames this wine. 
Drink now-2015.
