Chateau Grand Traverse Old Mission Peninsula Gamay Noir Limited, 2017

Tasted alongside the Underwood Oregon Pinot Noir, this Gamay definitely had more  distinctive Pinot traits.

Medium light ruby. Looks like a Pinot Noir. Tempting smells of cranberries, red raspberries and flowers. Smells like a Pinot Noir. Medium light body and silky texture. Pepper, lemon zest and spice. Tastes like a Pinot. Raspberry sweetness against a tart cranberry background. Acid and tannin dance on the tongue. This is the Chateau Grand Traverse Gamay Noir Limited rather than the Reserve, but it is still a special wine, my second favorite Michigan red (after the Gamay Noir Reserve).
