2019 The Vice Saint Laurent, “Majorelle”, Napa Valley, Single Winery

I used to be stunned to search out the St. Laurent grape grown within the Napa Valley, since I often encounter it solely in Austria. In truth this wine is created from the grapes of 1 single winery in Napa. 

The wine has heady, sharp, boysenberry aromas and a vibrant taste, mild and fruity. By some means it manages to be each ethereal and rustic on the identical time. Its flavors appear to deepen with food, particularly earthy meals and autumnal greens. 

In response to The Vice Wines co-founder Malek Amrani, “It pairs significantly properly with mild meats, acidic sauces, mushrooms, and herbs. Something herb pushed does extraordinarily properly with St. Laurent. You may also need to accompany it with pizza, pasta dishes, charcuterie – and something you get pleasure from pairing with Pinot Noir will possible do properly with St. Laurent.” Evenly chilling the wine is advisable.

Although the official title of the grape is St. Laurent, Amrani has made his wine right into a play on phrases, honoring dressmaker Yves Saint Laurent’s reference to Amrani’s residence nation of Morocco. Amrani has named this wine after “Majorelle,” the wondrous botanical backyard crafted by Yves Saint Laurent at his Marrakech residence. Apart: undoubtedly go go to the unique Marrakesh Majorelle when the world opens up once more; I’ll always remember the morning I spent wandering by this fantastical backyard property.

Trace: In the event you’d prefer to pattern this wine, attempt to get your palms on it quickly; my bottle was labeled #448 of 600 bottles on this classic.
