St. Francis Merlot 2015
This is a classic Merlot with rich, deep color and expressive flavors. Medium-to-full bodied, the wine shows off multilayered aromas and flavors of plum, dried currant, peppercorn, and savory spices before a long, silky finish.
Excellent with beef, duck and blue cheese.
"This wine is beautifully balanced and has the right stuff. Its aromas and flavors of ripe, black fruit, an accent of oak, a suggestion of leather should pair it deliciously with a pan-seared, citrus-marinated skirt steak." -90pts, Wilfred Wong
