Paul Achs St. Laurent 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very focused in the glass with aromas of herbs, earthy beetroot, ginseng, gardenias, and a hint of star anise over sweet and spicy wild blueberry fruit. Soft and well balanced in the mouth with a soft, silky feel. This is very Pinot Noir-textured, with a profile that recalls the red fruit of Pinot yet in an earthier, more mineral register. This is both slightly rustic and quite elegant at the same time with a touch of wood spice and vanilla floating over the gentle raspberry and red cherry-toned fruit. The finish is long and lithe, continuing with fading echoes of that earthy fruit. This is really seductive yet quite a subtle wine. 91pts

Cherry and raspberry nose. Medium bodied. Tart, good acidity.

Wine was everything I hoped for, smooth, fragrant and light, reminiscent of Baden red wine. Merchant delivered a good value on time.
