St. Francis Winery Red Splash 2011
"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
Four and a half glasses
External Reviews for St. Francis Winery Red Splash
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".
