Gamay
Critic's Rating 90 pts

Aged for 6 months in French oak barrels, 20% of which were new, this Gamay possesses an attractive medium ruby colour. The nose shows beautiful and fruity aromas of brambleberry, Bing cherry, black tea, and a touch baking spices. On the palate, it is light to medium-bodied, juicy, suggesting notes of fresh Bing cherry, a touch of black tea and baking spices. The tannins are soft, and the finish is bright, balanced and long.

Food Pairings: This wine would pair beautifully well with a charcuterie board, beef carpaccio, gourmet sausage pizza or a pork rillette with balsamic mustard. The 2018 Cherry Avenue Gamay Noir is also a wine that can be enjoyed on its own.
