88pointsHawthorne 2016 Gamay (Old Mission Peninsula)

A pretty pale-ruby wine, this Gamay offers aromas of blueberry and foraged blackberry melded with bramble, wild herb and violet. More violet and juicy flavors of cranberry and pomegranate are touched by vanilla, with garrigue adding depth. The acidity is bright but a little unruly, but a spice note on the end offers more complexity to this lovely quaffable red. Fiona Adams
