St. Francis Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County, CA, 2016 (750ml)
A classic Cabernet Sauvignon that shows off rich color, layered aromatics and good structure. The wine is smooth and vibrant with cassis, dark cherry and black olive aromas preceding rich fruit flavors of dark plum and cherry preserves followed by a note of roasted coffee bean.
Blend: An excellent companion to aged blue cheese, braised or grilled beef, and roast pork with fruit

Savoury notes take precedence over fruit at this stage, with a hint of compost and cured meat. It’s full-throttle and layer by layer it gets more interesting; but it’s still a baby showing great potential. Drinking Window 2020 - 2028
