Delicious Gamay from the very talented and thoughtful Byron Kusuge. From a tiny block of Gamay within the vineyard he sources for his excellent “The Shop” Pinot Noir. The Gamay is medium/light (I’d say hearty for Gamay) with dark red plum, pomegranate, dried violet and pink peppercorn flavors. It reminds me of quality Beaujolais from a warm vintage.

Not all wine is created equal.
