Wine Find: 2007 St. Francis Cabernet Sauvignon

April 18, 2011|By Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

This medium- to full-bodied red wine has a touch of earthiness — not at all unpleasant — that distinguishes it from a Napa cabernet. It's a bit more rustic, leaning more to blackberry than black cherry, and adds elements of smoked meat, chocolate and pepper. It's quite drinkable now and probably wouldn't gain much with age. All in all, a hearty, flavorful cabernet that goes down easy.
