2005 Hills Beaujolais ($8.99 Whole Foods). Alcohol level: 12.5%. Hard to believe this was a â€œplain oleâ€ Beaujolais, as it was comparable to most Villages weâ€™ve had.
It gave black cherries and blueberries on the nose and upfront. It had very nice complexity in the middle with a touch of minerality; and a pleasant finish.
Matched it with burgers grilled over charcoal and oak chips, and a salad with blue cheese dressing. Very nice! It is highly recommended as a summer hamburger wine.
