Winemaker's Notes:

This Merlot is smooth and elegant with classic flavors and aromas of cherry, red licorice, currant and dried cranberry. Its silky structure is balanced by soft tannins and a bold, lengthy finish.

Excellent with beef, duck and blue cheese.

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.
