2016 Ça Roule? Beaujolais

Ça roule? is the French way of saying “How are you doing?” and it’s the perfect name for this fun and flirty wine. Made from 100% Gamay Noir, this Beaujolais is easygoing and easy to love, with enticing aromas of red cherry and candied violet that draw you in, followed by bright flavors of alpine strawberry and plum on the palate. Lovely on its own, this pleasant red is even better with a platter of salumi and cheese. After a few sips, you’ll be doing just fine.
