Kurt Angerer's reds have improved dramatically, and are know seriously good, especially for a region known primarily for it's white wines. The last couple of St.Laurent's have been extremely good, the new 2008 is another delicious example. Attractive cherry and plum fruit on the nose with some vanillan oak. Medium bodied and juicy with lovely spice and red fruits, hints of blackberry too. It's got lovely sweetness to it, some dried herb and soft tannins, most attractive, not unlike a new world Pinot Noir. Drink now and over the next 3 years.
