Food Pairings for St. Francis Claret Sonoma County
Nice Claret with a smooth finish. Recommend for the price.
Full of fruit. A good accompaniment to food.
Good, medium-bodied red. It was impossible to see the color of the wine in the restaurant due to low lighting, and plastic cork closure made that a no-go, too. The wine was bright with cassis and an underlying acidity but not too much tannins. Smooth on the palate. Maybe could have gone for a slightly more tannic wine, given we were all eating steak. Still, the medium body made it pleasant to drink the whole bottle throughout the salad course and with all the varied sides.
i was totally overwhelmed by the oak. seemed like there was nice fruit, but the oak choked it out.
[With Strawberry and chocolate p a Saddleback Cab] The nose on the wine makes feel like I am in a Sonoma wine cave with huge oak and fruit. However on the palate I am sorry to say it is completely out of balance; too much oak/vanilla, a little plum, and some bitterness on the brief finish. I still love St Francis, but I would not purchase this again.
