  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

The alcohol spikes a bit, heavy tannins, but tasty and enjoyable if you can find it for around $15. Wouldn't pay the $19.

A full-bodied wine with a wonderful bouquet and color. Fruit-forward, unusually spicy and full of flavor. One of the best wines for the money in 2006 vintage.

Deep ruby cast. Medium-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted,. Moderately oaked. Mildly tannic. Brown spices, black fruits, minerals. Pleasantly aromatic, with a forward, spicy oak accent. Supple and fruit-centered in the mouth, with a generous finish.

Smooth and supple, with ripe, fleshy cherry, herb, currant and bell pepper notes. Turns polished on the finish. An excellent value in a ready-to-drink style. Enjoy through 2000.

Soft-textured, with pleasant flavors of bay leaf, black cherry and herb. Finishes short, with mild tannins. Drink now through 2002.

Good deep red. Superripe aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, tar, coffee grounds, loam and meat. Silky, sweet and generous, with redcurrant and game flavors; rather Merlot-like texture. Finishes ripe, with soft tannins and modest grip. perfect for drinking now.

St. Francis, established in 1979, was the site of the Last Mission on the California Mission Trail. Planted to orchards prior to grapes, the wines are fruity, and thanks to the process of mixing French and American oak-aged wines, creamy and luscious on the palate. Try it with broiled meats and pasta with red sauce.

Winemakers Notes: A succulent blend of 48% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah, 3% Zinfandel and 6% Mixed Blacks (Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Alicante, Malbec), RED is lush with succulent ripe red fruit flavors and spicy aromas. Full-bodied and versatile, RED pairs with a variety of foods for any occasion.

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 continue to improve with up to seven years of ageing.
