St. Francis Red 2006Compare and Buy
Average Price: $19.99
Added Jun 30, 2010 at 6:35pmDark chocolate and freshly cut wood on the nose; black fruit and a touch of smoked meat and, well, something that says "campfire" on the finish.

Added Jun 30, 2010 at 6:15pmSoft, mashed, thick-bramble berries and black pepper on the nose. Delicious dark fruit in the mouth, it plays at the perfect volume, backed up by gentle tannins and a quiet reminder of oak on the finish. Nicely balanced, easy, delicious.

Added Jun 28, 2010 at 8:30pmMy goodness, this is interesting: hot slate, drying paint, wet chalk on the nose. Juicy dark fruit with soft-soft tannins, excellent acidity, and the tiniest hit of dark chocolate on the end. Dig.

Added Jun 15, 2010 at 7:00pmWhat a heady character, this chard: tons jumping off. A little burnt earth, maybe burnt rubber smoldering beneath the sweet oak and ripe, chalky peach & lime on the nose, lemony creme brulee throughout.

Added Jun 15, 2010 at 6:29pmThis is a serious Chard. There's a bit of heat on the nose, and then big, rich oak -- it's bold, but nicely integrated. Chalky lime and slate give way to great, juicy lemon and field grass on the palate.

Added Jun 15, 2010 at 5:43pmIt's 8 bucks, max. Have it with burgers: you'll get a juicy green apple, a grassy effervescence. Adjust your expectations to match exactly what you paid for the bottle, and you'll be just fine. I'd buy it again.

Added Jun 15, 2010 at 5:35pmHard rind cheese and bakery aromas off the top, a bit of mint and lemon verbena stick to the end.

Average Price: $11.99
Added Jun 15, 2010 at 5:27pmLots of peach on the nose, like, maybe a hit of spearmint. There's a promise of refreshing acidity that doesn't really pay off. A little sad & flabby in the mouth.

Added May 5, 2010 at 11:41amThe nose is deeply confectionery, all golden honey & caramel. At 40% Tocai, 40% Moscato, and 20% Riesling, the bold, sugary aromas come as no surprise. But what happens next is nothing short of magic, a brilliant sleight of hand, a trick of mirrors: on the palate, the sweetness turns subtle, and very nearly slips from reach altogether. The tongue experiences the sugar not as an afterthought, but an echo. As fireworks, lighting far-off hills.
