Drank: Gamay Nouveau (Bow & Arrow)

drank_4004
Seven weeks ago, the grapes in Bow & Arrow’s gamay noir were on the vine. Four weeks ago, they were in the urban winery’s fermentation tanks in the basement of the Bindery building on Northeast Sandy Boulevard. Now, they’re in $15 bottles at the Woodsmen Market and other shops where strong young juice is sold. Oregon’s answer to France’s Beaujolais nouveau, this juicy red is meant to be uncorked as quickly as possible after the ceremonial release on the third Thursday of November. I sampled the French version at a Multnomah Athletic Club fete last week, but strongly preferred this local take: It’s boldly fruity, pleasantly loud and as gluggable as advertised. Recommended.
