St. Francis Cabernet Sauvignon (2005)

For those of you who read our blog, you will know that we have been absent due to a family crisis. We are now home for the time being.

I am having a glass of this incredibly luscious California Cabernet. This is really good. Granted, it should be good, considering we paid more for this bottle than we do for most. . .$24.99. Happily, it doesn’t disappoint in the least.

This Sonoma County wine is a typical California Cabernet with rich taste and substantial body. The nose is predominantly tobacco with a slight hint of vanilla. The flavor is ripe fruit, while the structure is balanced and firm. The tannins are just right and on the hefty side.

I had a non-stop day at work and did not get a break to have lunch. . .so, knowing that I need some protein to fill this empty tummy, we are going to grill a steak and I am going to make a side dish with sauteed asparagus, green onions and fresh tomatoes (from my garden) mixed with penne pasta and olive oil.

This is a great wine and worth the price. Cheers!
