This is a beauty of a St Laurent everyone should taste. 

If you aren't familiar with St Laurent this would be a definite puzzler of a wine, showing its more "pinot-ey" side especially in the nose.

In the nose there is all the forest on a summer walk, as you can get in Pinot too.

Once you sip the wine it's definitively not Pinot - more tannins, for one, beautiful smooth fruit, and the animal side is a very different beast from a Pinot. 

A developing style with lots of tertiary aromas.
A wilder St Laurent
Food Pairings: Game, wild pigeon, venison, wild boar
Tasting Notes

A multi layered wine with a powerful bouquet, some fine smoke, lots of tertiary meaty, savoury notes followed by some dark spicy fruit. Its definitely the more animal side of St. Laurent
