I love Beaujolais. At least the Cru wines. They are versatile, friendly and although not everyone agrees, the best ones age wonderfully. So, when at a friends house for dinner recently and he had prepared a Cauliflower dish with pesto that seemed a difficult food match, I suggested he open this. A good choice. Deep ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cherries, plums, spice and some barnyard. On the palate, there are cherries with slight almonds and slightly dry tannins which all worked together in a good way. Good acidity. Nice finish.
Visiting wine country? Why spend $250 per day in tasting fees when you can get the wine pass and pay less then half of that? 1 Day with the wine pass = $125+ in savings. 2 Days with the wine pass = $250+ in savings. The Priority Wine Pass
