Impenetrable ruby with thin clear edges. A day at the beach with a nice offshore breeze while the Bako crew is enjoying some BBQ peppercorn steak with Iron Maiden blaring from the truck.
This is not your father’s Gamay. This is blackberry jam, fresh violets, and blueberry pie with a savory finish 90% of Santa Barbara County Syrahs wish they could duplicate. If you think Gamay is a weak varietal then step up to this wine and swear off the half-hazard attempts to make anything as powerful, structured and fresh. This wine is an absolute rock star.
