2016 Duck Pond Gamay Noir

$28.00 per Bottle
After the strong, rich Gamay of 2015, it was hard to believe what came out of the fermenter in 2016 – something even more explosive. Our 2016 Gamay Noir is outstanding, with deep purple color that stains the glass. The nose is enjoyable with notes of cranberry, orange peel and fruit leather. The palate is fleshy, carrying though those flavors from the nose, with additional hints of allspice and vanilla on a soft and round skeleton. This will be a great pairing for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, or simply, a cozy, rainy night by the fireplace. Enjoy immediately, though 2-3 years of thoughtful aging will be rewarded with an even more complex wine.
