Review a new wine!

 One of my "first" wines was a California Gamay- Beaujolais, (many magnums ago...).  Old tastes die hard I guess.  I like this wine.  It was nicely fruity, but not without structure and a slightly dryer finish.  This is a great BBQ wine, it goes well with almost any smokey/spicey dish, or just drink it solo, slightly chilled.

 This wine is what you would expect from a BIG Australian vineyard.  Nice dark red color tinged with purple.  Plums and spice on the nose.  Chewy berry jam on the palate, and a touch of white pepper on the finish.  We drank this bottle with a nicely underdone steak.
