Winestyr Review

Bursting with minerality, herbaceousness, and delicate red fruit, this Gamay is a prime example of why Oregon has taken its place as one of the finest places to grow the varietal outside of its native Beaujolais - and also why Gamay is going to be the next big thing in America. Although it is lighter-bodied, the taut structure and beautiful balance make this wine extremely food-friendly. Serve this versatile and oh-so-drinkable wine slightly chilled. Aged for 10 months in French Burgundy barrels. 131 cases produced.

What We Love

  • Minerality and herbaceousness
  • Versatile and a pleasure to drink

This Gamay from Oregon is a great example of why this wine is the next big thing in America.
