A really lovely wine for $20.  This is a Cru Beaujolais that is drinking great now and should be good for another 7 to 10 years!  Deep garnet in color.  Clear and bright.  The nose has cherries and slight cherry powdered drink mix.  On the palate, tart bing cherries with slight tannins.  Slightly sour (in a good way) on the finish.  In ten years, this should drink like a Pinot of comparable age.  It is very food friendly with good acidity.  Think anything from Salmon to mushroom dishes to poultry.
