Evening Land Vineyards "Celebration" Eola Amity Hills Gamay Noir 2010

Member Review by Etty Lewensztain:

This is crazy delicious Oregon grown organic and biodynamic Gamay that's a sort of new world homage to Cru Beaujolais. The vineyard where this fruit is sourced dates back to 1983 and the result is a funky, savory, vivacious wine that displays gorgeous red currant fruit, refreshing herbal undertones, and mouth watering acidity. A fabulous little gem! Click here to watch my video review of this wine: http://www.plonkwinemerchants.com/oregon/evening-land-celebration-gamay-noir/

I know some people like "barnyard" on the nose, but I am not a fan. This wine drinks much better than than it smells, but it must be allowed time to open up. The barnyard nose dissipates with time and then it is rather enjoyable.

Matchstick and funky barnyard on the nose, but some green earthiness as well. As is opens up, the barnyard aroma softens and is less offensive. Pale, transparent ruby red. This looks much more like Pinot Noir than Gamay, and is extremely lean and acidic on the palate. Some tart red fruit and minerality to spare. Medium finish. On the whole, once it opens up, quite enjoyable.
