Ontario Reviews

Featherstone 2009 Gamay
"Our inspiration is the great Gamays produced at 13th Street," Louise Engel (owner) confided in me, she is referencing one of Ontario's top Gamay houses and I would say they have done an admirable job, in fact they may have outdone the master with this '09 version. This is one kick-ass / killer Gamay, delivering all the fruit one could hope for from this grape. The nose is loaded with black cherry, while the palate follows suit with that robustness of cherry with a mere hint of spice and incredible palate cleansing acidity to balance it all out. So worth sipping on - chill it just a bit to enjoy it's full fruited potential. Price: $19.95 - Rating: **** 1/2+
