Def. NOT a full bodied wine. it is medium bodied. could us a little more fruit and power. not a big nose Can find better wine at this price range. Read more

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

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.

Softly tannic, this Cab is full-bodied and has some complexity. The black cassis and cherry flavors have layers of spice and smoky oak, with a fine, sweet finish that lingers. Drink now through 2010.

Aromas of mocha, currant, dill and herb are rich and concentrated on the palate, revealing a dense, complex core of flavor that keeps building on a long, integrated finish. Very impressive. Drink now through 2009.

This is a pretty good Cab with some pleasant features. It's dark, very dry and rich in tannins, with blackberry and earthy-tobacco and a touch of oak. A good example of a decent countrywide blend.

(Barrel tasting) Firm and structured, with angular tannins and a tight core of earthy currant, tobacco and cedar, Tightens up, with a touch of mustiness.

Currant, plum and black currant tones have firm structure, with roasted herbs and cedary notes on the finish. Drink now through 2006.

A big, sturdy, dry Cabernet, rich in chewy tannins, and filled with blackberries, cherries, currants and oak.

Few winemakers can oak-age a wine as successfully as St. Francis winemaker Tom Mackey. Opulent, fragrant oak nuances add complexity in this Cabernet Sauvignon, which was aged for 14 months in new American and French oak barrels and is made with grapes from five different appellations in Sonoma County.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Made 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.
