Ochota Barrels the price of silence Gamay 2020

Had the pleasure of the company of both the wife and Mother-in-Law recently at the local wine bar, this leapt off the list and into my glass. New release - and already out of stock ex-winery - it's a single vineyard offering, from the same vineyard as the (Mark of Cain) Pinot Meunier, for those familiar with the range from Ochota Barrels.

Bottle 499/ 800 produced. It's such an expressive wine, conveying a beautiful perfume on initial opening. It's a riot of cola, cranberry and raspberry, such expression of aroma. 

The palate has the same initial expression, supplemented with herbaceous notes, a fair portion of whole bunch one suggests. A fine mineral edge of tannin, something like a peanut brittle lead in to the finish. Exquisite. 94
