2016 13th Street Gamay Noir, Canada, Niagara, Wine Review

Deep ruby/purple in color.  Bright.  The nose is dusty and slightly horsey with red berries.  On the palate, plums and cherries.  Still a lot of tannins.  This wine could pass for Clos de la Roilette, one of the better Beaujolais producers.  Whether it improves in the cellar is a question, but it is drinking quite well right now.  Would work with a lot of foods including heartier fare as well.  $17.  

2015 Daniel Bouland Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes, France, Beaujolais, Wine Review

Wow, is this good.  $30 retail and a great value at that price.  Ruby in color with some purple swirls.  The nose has sour cherries, cherries, anise, slight spice.  On the palate, this has a wonderful texture.  Medium bodied but lush.  Great acidity.  Juicy black cherry fruit.  Deep and some complexity.  Light tannins.  Great with food.  It is delicious.
