Lailey Vineyard 2007 Gamay-Zweigelt
(Re-Tasted April 2010) ... While I sang the praises of this wine in my previous review I have to be honest, I never once pulled this wine out last year for BBQ season. Instead, a little over a year from my initial review, I have pulled a bottle out to give it another taste. I wanted something simple yet enjoyable this evening and I got exactly what I bargained for. The fruit is red, the spice has become herbal and both mingle in the mouth to give a nice medium length finish. This is one easy drinking red that you could easily chill and enjoy on the patio this summer - and this time I might even take my own advice. No BBQ tonight, instead I had a simple beef stew and all went well, before, during and after dinner.
