Winemaker's Notes:

Our Sonoma County Chardonnay is styled to be crisp, with a fresh expression of the varietal classic Sonoma character. The fruit and melon aromas are offset by a slight oak and vanilla note which carries on the palate. The fruit flavors are ripe, varietal medium to full-bodied while the acidity acts to balance the mouth feel. The finish is rich and persistent carrying the balance of fruit, grape acidity and oak.

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.
