Description: Darkly-colored St. Laurent came from Alsace and Germany in the mid 1860s. The name comes from Saint Lawrence’s day, August 10th, at which point the grapes become edible. The wines are characterized by a wildly fresh sour-cherry aromatic, coupled with high extract and solid tannins. A good example, like this wine, will show Pinot Noir-like elegance. The acid is moderate but brings out a strongly mineral element. Alcohol is not high, only 12%, and the wine is quite drinkable now. There is a fine, slightly rustic element, which gives the wine plenty of character. Perfect for red meats or hearty vegetarian fare. The wine spent one year in large barrels.
Food Pairing: Game, hearty vegetable dishes.
