Tasting Note: Taste the color purple with this 2016 Moulin-à-Vent Beaujolais that has more concentration than you might expect from a gamay.

Medium-tending-towards-deep purple in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red currant, red cherry, red raspberry, crushed-dried-violet blossom and strawberry.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied Beaujolais is bright with medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and slightly-grippy, medium tannin.

There is midpalate complexity, florality and balance between the fruit and acid structure.

Supple, soft and delicious.
