This classic, rich Merlot reveals a deep color and broad structure. Aromas of cassis, plum and dried currant merge with layered flavors of dark berries, espresso bean and bittersweet chocolate. The wine has a long, vibrant finish with a note of spice.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 St. Francis Merlot nicely balances fruit and oak in this medium to full-bodied wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows up with bold, black fruit, delicate notes of oak, and a good bite on the palate. Enjoy it with a tender, nicely spiced beef stew.
