Ladies and gentlemen, the man recently named SF Chronicle’s Winemaker of the Year has an announcement: Stop Drinking Beaujolais Nouveau! You want the freshness of fall? Stay in your own timezone! This is fresh, fruity and -- dare we say it? -- kinda complex! made with Valdiguie, California's longstanding answer to Gamay, it's vibrant and chillable. Plums. Strawberries. Rhubarb. And a smokey peppery note. As with all of the coolio local Nouveaux, there’s not a lot of this one, so grab it while it’s here.
