St. Francis Winery Red Splash 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"A versatile red wine that is luscious, full-flavored and full-bodied. Luscious raspberry fruit and spicy clove notes are complemented by a round midpalate and well-structured length. Pair with casual weekend meals such as lasagna, sausage and peppers, pepperoni pizza or cheeseburgers." Producer notes

  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

A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Zinfandel, this is an easy to drink wine, with red currant and toasty dill aromas. Bright cherry, bittersweet chocolate and spice flavors.

Here's another of these delightful red blends we're seeing more and more of out of California. This one comes from St. Francis in Sonoma and it's a tantalizing blend of 52% Merlot, 13% Petite Sirah, 11% Syrah, 9% Zinfandel, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the remainder a blend of Carignane and Petite Verdot. It's aged 15 months in French and American oak and then 8 months in the bottle for a soft, supple mouthfeel. In March Fox News called this latest release "A Great Spring Wine... and a red with more bold and rich flavors." Earlier vintages were lauded in Food & Wine Magazine who called it "One of the Best American Wines under $15" and the San Francisco Chronicle named it a "Top 5 Hearty Red $15 and under".
