St. Francis Red 2006Compare and Buy

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.
Jun 15, 2010 at 5:27pm
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.

Added May 17, 2010 at 2:49pmThere's all manner of barnyard and orchard aromas, from wet wool and hard rind cheese to dry straw and horse apples. Thick, woodsy fruit on the palate, nice structure with surprising acidity and super-soft tannins.
