St. Francis Nuns Canyon Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
from Sonoma County, California
High on the steep, terraced slopes of the Mayacamas Mountain range lies the Nuns Canyon region. With strong western exposure and shallow, rocky soils, this terroir renders unusually concentrated grapes marked by deep color, abundant tannins, and flavors ranging from cassis to mint and black cherry to chocolate. Our grapes were hand-picked and crushed into stainless steel tanks, where fermentation took place over eight to fifteen days, followed by malolactic fermentation which took place over the next six weeks. Racked into French and American oak barrels, the wine was then aged for twenty-four months before being bottled and held for another twelve months before release.

I experienced this wine at an Italian Restaurant in Delray Beach, FL and fell in love with it. It is very smooth with no overpowering aftertaste. It paired very nicely with heavy red sauces. Try it and enjoy.

A hidden treasure. Elegant and silky throughout. Huge floral nose. Subtle chocolate and smoke on the finish. Can't tell what it's like when you let it sit..I can't wait that long.
