St. Francis Winery, “Red� 2002

by Tim Elliott on September 23, 2005

St. Francis Winery, “Red“, Sonoma County 2002 ($10) – A blend of Merlot, Zinfandel, Grenache and Sangiovese. Dark ruby color, spicy blackberry and plum aromas with bold blackberry, raspberry and black pepper flavors finished with healthy, but somewhat polished, tannins. If tasted blind I would have sworn that Cabernet Sauvignon was involved here. Could use a year or two in the cellar to develop further. A nice value and an innovative package with 12 different labels plus a cool, black plastic cork. Score: 8.5/10
