    Winemaker Notes

    The grapes used to make the St. Francis Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon come primarily from our vineyard situated high in the Mayacamas mountain range between Sonoma and Napa County. It provides the wines backbone and classic Cabernet personality. The older, low-yielding vines produce intensely concentrated grapes of particular depth of color and tannin which typically ripen by mid-October.

    The fruit is hand-harvested and crushed into temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Fermentation takes place over a period of eight to fifteen days. The wine is then pressed into stainless steel tanks where malolactic fermentation is completed over the next six weeks. The different lots are racked into new and one year old French and American oak barrels for an aging period of 24 months. The blend is then assembled without fining or filtration, bottled and held for eight months prior to release.

    For more than four decades, the wines of St. Francis Winery & Vineyards have reflected the finest mountain and valley vineyards in Sonoma County. Our founder, Joe Martin, fell in love with Sonoma Valley and established St. Francis Vineyard in 1971, planting 22 acres of Chardonnay and the first 60 acres of Merlot in Sonoma Valley. After achieving great success as a grower, Joe opened his own winery in 1979 with his business partner Lloyd Canton.

    Today, a new generation of winemakers, Katie Madigan and Chris Louton, continues our long tradition of luscious, elegant, fruit-driven wines from Sonoma County grapes. We farm more than 400 acres of Certified Sustainable estate vineyards in Sonoma Valley and Russian River Valley, each with varying compositions of loam, clay and volcanic soils. We also nurture long-term relationships with top Sonoma County grape growers, giving the Winery access to some of the region's most coveted old vines Zinfandel and other varietals from acclaimed vineyards.
