Sorry guys but between school and work I'm pretty much dead. Pulled an overnight for the first time in nearly four years and it was not too forgiving on me. The one good thing I can tell you is that I actually tried this year's Beaujolais Nouveau! It's not half bad, and it actually holds a match against last year's vintage.
For those of you unfamiliar with the wine, it is the French grape Gamay and is cultivated in the appellation of Beaujolais, known pretty much only for its early harvest wines. According to French law, it is not to be released until the third Thursday of November and it is the first wine released in the French vintage, making this the first available 2010 vintage.
This year's vintage is not half bad. Pretty much like a Diet Pinot Noir with a little extra sweetness. As crazy as that sounds, one sip will have you agreeing 100% with me. Really strong notes of blueberries and sage, and for only about $8.99 it's worth a shot. I also kinda like the label this year!
