2012 Shelodrake Point Gamay Noir - Innkeeper - 07-21-2014 04:52 PM

2012 Sheldrake Point, Finger Lakes, Gamay Noir ($16.00 U.S.; Alcohol level: 12.8%). This was a wonderful wine despite its light color. It was medium bodied with soft aromatics on the nose and upfront. It the middle we found dried flowers, and fresh red berries. It provided a lovely finish.

It had enough umph to match nicely with lamb burgers grilled over charcoal and pecan chips; Italian green beans, and a mini baguette. Yum!

Found out that the umph (or oomph if you will), came from a 15% shot of Syrah according to the winery's website.
