Cave De La Côte Gamaret/Garanoir 2008

Cave De La Côte Gamaret/Garanoir 2008, VDP Selection Suisse Romande (Switzerland); #160739; Price: $19.95; 13.3% ABV
Gamaret and Garanoir are both a cross between Gamay and Reichensteiner – same parents but different grapes – a Swiss researcher developed both. Has the colouring of a Beaujolais Cru (medium ruby). Earthy and mineral aromas dominate, with some under-ripe plum, spice, and floral notes on the nose as well. Plum and cherry show up on the palate. It has medium acidity and some drying tannins on the back end. Medium-bodied, the finish is a bit short. A simple wine, it goes quite well with BBQ-grilled mushrooms and works with salmon sausages (from Saslove).
