Juris St. Laurent Selection 2007
Gamey aromas of smoked meat and truffles quickly lure you in to this sleek and stylish Austrian red made from St. Laurent, an aromatic grape variety related to Pinot Noir. An absolute pleasure to drink with soft, plummy fruit, raspberry coulis, sour cherries, and a luxurious mouthfeel that ups the ante on the wine's tactile appeal.
Editorial Reviews for Juris St. Laurent Selection
Very sweet and assertive on the nose, with more of a new world note than many other St. Laurent. This shows some distinct vanilla and sweet, if transparent, red currant, cranberry, wild cherry-toned fruit. Velvety in the mouth and nicely bright with earthy and lightly mineral-framed pure wild berry fruit flavors. This is decidedly fruit and fresh with soft tannins and integrated acids providing a rather seamless feel. The fruit has a gently earthy edge to it, but is a touch simple and finishes on the shorter side. 87pts
