2017 Headline Red Blend Sonoma County
by Tres Sabores Family
A foot-tread wine, an artisanal expression of St Laurent, this wine is made in the "fresh" style, incorporating the energy we feel when trying something new and applying the best of our experience to make something special happen in your glass. St Laurent, a cold-climate varietal usually found in Austria, Germany, and the Czech Republic, is very rare here. Dale Ricci, our grower in the Carneros, only has five acres of this ancient marvel: the outcome of monks’ efforts to marry Pinot Noir with Traminer. Malbec, the grand grape of Argentina, is only slightly less exotic and is certainly not commonplace in Napa. Headline Red blends the exuberance and grace of St Laurent with the crushed dark velvet power of Malbec and makes something, the likes of which we’ve never tasted before! It is good. Very good.
