Nov. 16 is Beaujolais Nouveau Day, a major festival in the Beaujolais region of France where the first of the 2017 wines are released after only a few months of fermentation.

Those wines are made from gamay noir, the same grape used to make this more aged Beaujolais. A cousin of pinot noir, gamay offers fresh floral and fruity wines that are high in acid and low in tannins.

This offering from B&G is a simple but delightful wine that would make a great companion with a turkey dinner. Did someone say Thanksgiving wine?

Sherry: “Semi-dry and fruity with tart cherry and raspberry flavors.” (3.25 stars out of 5)

Chris: “A nose of anise with a light, fruity body and flavors of cherry.” (3.25 stars out of 5)

Available from $9 to $12.

Coming next week: Graham Beck The Game Reserve Pinotage
