  When Joe and Emma Martin purchased the 100 acre Behler Ranch Vineyard in Sonoma Valley in 1971, they never could have expected the success that their vineyard would achieve. After several years of making grapes for other wineries, they decided to start their own winery in 1979, and they have been producing quality wines ever since. They called the winery St. Francis Winery, named after St. Francis of Assisi, protector of the natural world, and in honor of the Franciscan order, thought to be the first to bring European grape cultivation to America. St. Francis currently has 600 acres under vine in Sonoma County, with many partnerships with other vineyards in the area, including Rockpile Vineyard, Amman Ranch, Leras Ranch, and Pagani Ranch. Each of their wines are produced from 100% hand-picked Sonoma fruit, but that’s not enough to produce such bold, full-bodied wines. It is the hard work of Tom Mackey, Director of Winemaking, and the other winemakers at St. Francis Winery & Vineyards that allows these great wines to be produced, year after year. Read less

Loads of black current and hints of thai basil in this Cab. Initially the oak was a little too much for me, but it smoothed out once the bottle breathed for an hour or so in the decanter.

Very drinkable. A little less fruity than some other cali cabs I've tried, perhaps because it's slightly older. A little chalky but that adds to the complexity here. I like.

From Sonoma County comes this solid, traditionally made Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich and deeply fruited with great structure, this wine is sure to please at your next backyard barbeque. Will benefit from three to seven years of ageing.

St. Francis Winery has created this Wild Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon from a blend of mountainside vineyards thought Sonoma County. With underlying minerality that gives this wine immense structure and notes of dark berries, this Cabernet remains approachable.

Wine Tasting NotesMade from fruit originating from five Sonoma County appellations: Sonoma Valley, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley, Russian River Valley and Alexander Valley. This Cabernet Sauvignon, a classic blend of the noble varietal. The Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon has deep, spicy aromas of cassis, blackberry and a note of toast, a rich mouth feel with borad fruit on the palate showing black currant, plum, blueberry and spicy oak vanilla flavors. The ripe tannins are soft.
