St. Francis Vineyards & Winery Claret Sonoma County 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2007 Sonoma County Claret is a blend of carefully selected Bordeaux varietals grown throughout Sonoma County. The long 2007 growing season provided the grapes with the time that they needed to develop full ripeness, deep color, and soft tannins. After the handed picked fruit was de-stemmed, it was pumped into tanks for a slow and warm fermentation. After fermentation the wine was pumped into French, American and Hungarian Oak barrels to age for 24 months. Each varietal was stored separately until six months before bottling, when blending occurred. The final blend consists of 26% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petite Verdot. Artfully crafted by winemaker Tom Mackey, this wine is sure to impress.

  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

Tasting Notes:

A complex though well balanced blend of luscious Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Verdot & Malbec. Our Sonoma County Claret is a blend of skillfully selected Bordeaux varietals grown throughout Sonoma County. This is a true Sonoma County Claret, with the backbone and sturdy tannins of the Cabernet Sauvignon, sweet earthy notes of Sonoma Valley grown Merlot and the spicy characteristics of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The finished wine is an assemblage of Sonoma County terroir, ideally grown grapes and winemaking craftsmanship not to be missed.
