Winemaker's Notes:

The St. Francis Reserve Cabernet is produced from 100% fruit of our Nuns Canyon Vineyard situated high in the Mayacamas mountain range between Sonoma and Napa County. This steeply terraced vineyard, located high along the Mayacamas range, provides St. Francis with fruit of excellent character and classic Cabernet personality. Exceptional western exposure and deep rich soils produce intensely concentrated grapes with marked depth of color and abundant tannins.

Descriptors: cassis, plums, mint, licorice, black cherry, chocolate.

Food Affinities: Classic beef dishes, roasted lamb, grilled steaks, hearty cheeses, rich chocolate desserts.

Alcohol: 14.1 % by volume

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.
