Winemaker's Notes:

This Cabernet Sauvignon has rich varietal character and body. The wine's firm structure, generous tannins and depth of color compliment classic aromas of ripe blackcurrant and spicy tobacco. Flavors of currant, cassis and cedar delight the palate, and make this a wine to sip slowly and enjoy.

About St. Francis Winery:

St. Francis Vineyards & Winery, located in the heart of Sonoma County, produces big, bold, full-bodied wines that over deliver on flavor. Each wine is made from 100% hand-picked, Sonoma County fruit and are direct expressions of winemaker Tom Mackey, whose philosophy calls for "maximum extraction, minimal interaction."

St. Francis achieves critical acclaim from the wine media who refers to it as The House of Big Reds. Among its many accolades, St. Francis was recently named International Red Wine Maker of The Year by the London International Wine Challenge.
