St. Francis Merlot 2013
Wine EnthusiastThis is a well-made, larger-production offering of the variety that's appealingly round, soft and juicy, with a luxuriousness to the texture on the palate, generously surrounded in a big-bodied style of black cherry and vanilla.
Wine SpectatorCherry and green tea aromas lead to modest flavors of red plum, herb and cedar. Tannins tighten the finish. Drink now through 2020. 25,000 cases made.
