St. Francis Red Sonoma County 2005
Wine Tasting Notes St. Francis' interpretation of this varietal is a full and intense expression of the grape in a distinctive Sonoma style. The perfumed aromas of plummy black fruit and spicy herb and vanilla nuances are confirmed in the ripe, lush flavors. On the palate, the fruit is rich and full with hints of chocolate, set in a structure of generous, round tannins which are carried into the persistent, mouthfilling finish.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Juicy and succulent. A true blend as none of the grapes dominate. Smooth with no real tannin presence. Solid everyday red, true to its name. Lengthy finish of Welch's grape juice.
Scents of spice and licorice. Medium body. Tangy start, it is powdery/dry with a warm finish.
Hint of black licorice on the nose and a little vanilla. Oak monster. On the palate it seems quite smooth, no harsh alcohol at any time. I can still tell this is a heavily oaked wine but at the same time it doesn't seem too overly done. There are notes of overripe black fruits on the mid palate and decent length on the finish. The tannins grab your tongue aggressively at first and mellow off quickly, lessening their grip after just a second or two but hanging on through the finish. Another great effort by St. Francis winery. Great QPR, recommended.
zucchini, summer squash, maybe pumpkin? a value at $13.59, but we found it on a whim in West Virginia.
Really enjoyed this blend, it was on a recommendation from my local shop. I will be back for a few more bottles for sure.
My wife's favorite table wine!
We thoroughly enjoyed this wine. It is ready to drink now.
