Another delicious #rarecreature from the Forlorn Hope wine folks @Matthew Rorick This reminds me of a Cabernet Franc meets a Pinot Noir, purple floral and stone aromatics, with juicy fresh raspberry, cherry, a touch of savory and spice. #stlaurent

That chicken met its match. She danced so gloriously with @mdrorick until we ate and drank it all. They must have met on #tinder

I mean I drank this and then got an offer to be an ambassador to talk about periods, so that's something.

Funky, juicy, lively, fresh and so easy to drink. Reminds me of gamay with the lightness and combination of flowers and herbs. Delicious.

Always great to try a new variety. This bottle was decent, but quite green. Almost seems like it was picked underripe, for the sake of being underripe. Being a fan of lean wines this just didn't do it for me.

Interesting wine but a little heavy on the mulch-forest/floor-earth for me! Fun wine to try and also to pair with food, on its own it's a little awkward.

Another rare creature, indeed. I have yet to find a Forlorn Hope Wine that I did not like. Matthew Rorick's St Laurent is just lovely! Savory Christmas spice wrapped in a mouth watering meat-like blanket with a warm juicy plum, black tea & cracked blk pepper back note. #justcantgetenough #certifiablydelish
