2015 marks our first vintage working with the rare native-Austrian varietal, St. Laurent, from neighboring Ricci Vineyard. The 2015 SCRIBE St. Laurent is true to the varietal and the vineyard: minty aromatics, bright cherry fruit, soft tannins, super fresh.
2015 meteorological data: A dry, warm winter led to early budbreak; and, heat spikes at the end of summer prompted an early harvest. Despite lower than average yields, fruit was high in flavor and color.
