    Default TN: 1994 Duxoup Napa Gamay Dry Creek Valley

    As the back label says "...a riddle. It isn't from Napa Valley and
    isn't Gamay Beaujolais. Instead it is an ornery grape... "

    An experiment to see how it would age, and I guess it did well, as
    SWIMBO said it was the best wine we've had in a while.

    Fill high in the neck, and color only on the face of a good cork.
    Aroma of cherries and earth. Smooth and resolved acid and tannins,
    flavor again of cherries and earth. Pretty ruby color with brick
    orange at the edges. Don't know how it developed as it was gone
    quicker than you can say Jack Robinson... It is, though, at it's peak
    or on the downhill side.

    Gotta be an A on the Dale scale. 225 cases made, no hits on wine-searcher pro.

    I'm afraid so....

    It's an interesting setup - two people, small runs (couple of hundred
    cases each) of generally unusual varietals, in the Dry Creek area of
    Healdsburg, CA. I've never had a "bad" wine from them, but then I'm
    not a regular, either.
