What I'm Drinking: Red

Herve' Souhaut - La Souteronne - 100% Gamay (60-80 yr old vines) Rhone Valley, France. Organic. I admit, gamay is one of my favorite red grape varietals, so I am going to be a little biased when I say that this is one of the most impressive wines I've had in months.  It has the buoyancy of gamay, but the layers and intrigue of an old Northern Rhone wine.  Yet, it is young and it's fabulously young.  Even though it is tasting great right now I am sure with some time it might reveal even more of its beauty as well.  

I need to say that I feel lucky having this available to drink.  I think you will too.
