2014 Nouveau - Nouveaus, or Italian Novellos, represent the first wines to be released of a vintage. Made famous by the French Beaujolais, Nouveau wines are fermented differently than other red wines. These wines have the character of being lighter and brighter and emphasize the fruit elements. Nouveaus are not intended for extended aging so enjoy them early. The 2014 Nouveau is best when swirled and allowed to breathe a moment. The nose is earthy giving way to scents of raspberry and plum with hints of gardenia. The wine has a soft tartness with bright tastes of raspberry, cherry and pomegranate. This wine is very easy to pair with anything from poultry to red meat and is excellent with a variety of cheeses. It is also great slightly chilled when served on a hot day.
