About St. Laurent Red Wine

About St. Laurent Red Wine
St. Laurent is a medium-bodied red from the eponymous grape that is produced in Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic. It is a juicy red with bright cherry fruit and has similarities to both Gamay and Pinot Noir; acidity is tart and tannins are not heavy. This is not a wine to age so consume it fresh with veal or pork.

Garnet black color. Aromas and flavors of smoked meat, grilled berries, charcoal, and chocolate with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a delightful, medium-long finish with touches of sour cherry pit, sandalwood, and slate with crunchy tannins. A very distinctively savory and smoky earthy Austrian red with a California twist.
