I honestly don't remember a Nouveau carrying a Villages designation, but this was certainly a step up, so there is that. Purple in color. The nose has cherries, slight banana and a hint of bubblegum. Medium bodied. On the palate, the cherry fruit is nice. Clean. Not deep but tasty. This should at least drink well through the end of the year. A nice wine with Thanksgiving leftovers.
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
