Description

TASTING NOTES: 28% Syrah, 28% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec. 2016’s heat gave us big, tannic wines, so the 2016 version of Laura has more of the softer, textural varieties Merlot and Syrah than usual, and therefore a bit less of the Cabs. But don’t misunderstand us: the wine is still extremely age-worthy. We just wanted you to be able to enjoy the wine in its youth and then watch it “grow up” over the next decade.

FOOD PAIRINGS: Osso Bucco, beef stew, grilled beef or lamb or duck lasagna.

It’s quite a thing to win the admiration of those who like drinking elegant Bordeaux-styled reds for no less than five consecutive seasons. So where has this been VINTAGES? Welcome to the dependability and consistency of the Laura’s Red and with 2016 as its backbone it comes equipped to support with warmth and structure. It’s no fruit bomb or faux milkshake to be sure but it does deliver varietal parts that are distinguishable, first from cabernet sauvignion and merlot, than through the conduit catalyst of syrah and into malbec and petit verdot. The body of a medium minded texture meeting alcohol is tied together by solid cool-climate acidity. All this is what you get. Drink 2018-2022.
