"This Cabernet Sauvignon has rich varietal character and body. The wine’s firm structure, generous tannins, and depth of color complement classic aromas and flavors of ripe black currant, cassis, dusty cocoa and saddle leather." - St Francis Vineyards

  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

Rich and full bodied wine. Dark color and nose of berries. Mouth filling and smokey with hint of spice. Great with beef or rich pasta.

A full-bodied Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon with rich mouthfeel, moderate tannins and deep color accentuating the taste of black currant, plum, blueberry and spicy oak.

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.

Sourced from a variety of Sonoma County ranches, the 2005 Cabernet combines generous power, luscious mouthfeel, dark color and berry-like flavors in an ideal table wine - big, aromatic and firm-flavored, yet approachable.

Starts with dill pickle notes, but has ripe undertones of red currant and plum wrapped within spicy oak, finishing with supple tannins. Drink now through 2005. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
