Red, a relatively new addition to St. Francis Winery of Sonoma County, has had excellent reception. Blended from Merlot, Zinfandel, Grenache and Sangiovese.
Stylish in both taste and presentation, designer Jeffrey Caldewey, came up twelve different labels for the same wine. Hmmm… any collectors out there?
Appropriately, I sampled this affordable stunner at *Bar Rouge in DC. It is smooth with deep cherry tones and spicy aromas. I look forward to buying a bottle to accompany a summer grill-out with friends!
It typically sells for less than $12 a bottle.
