Intro: For five decades, the wines of St. Francis Winery & Vineyards have reflected the finest mountain and valley vineyards in Sonoma County. Our founder, Joe Martin, fell in love with Sonoma Valley and established St. Francis Vineyard in 1971, planting 22 acres of Chardonnay and the first 60 acres of Merlot in Sonoma Valley. After achieving great success as a grower, Joe opened his own winery in 1979 with his business partner Lloyd Canton.

Region: USA | California

Winery: St Francis

Grapes: Bordeaux Style Red Blend

Aging: French Oak Barrels

Tasting Notes: Wine Enthusiast 91 Points: "A blend of all five Bordeaux varieties, this wine is soft, and flatters with its polished flavors and fine veneer of oak. The flavors shift from blackberries and cherries to sweet herbs and back again, and finish with a kick of tannin. Very drinkable now, and should improve for a few years." (WE) Oct 2004
