St. Auguste is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. The St. Auguste is vinified and aged in the same fashion as Les Auréliens Rouge. The wine is fermented slowly with natural yeasts for 30 to 35 days at low temperature to ensure proper phenolics and aromatic extraction. The wine is pumped over the skins frequently to ensure proper aeration, thereby help tame the natural tannin in the wines of the region.
The color is deep purple with some ruby hints and it has rich ripe and smoky plum, black cherry and blackberry flavors and herb and spice notes typical of Provence. This is a wine that needs some air to show its best and could age for up to 10 years. Although lovely on its own, St. Auguste would be delicious with roasted or grilled poultry and meats, roasted or grilled vegetables, and with full bodied cheeses.
