about the grape +
Cabernet Sauvignon is adaptable to various growing conditions, and is known for its low yield and late ripeness. It generally produces full-bodied wines with substantial acidity and tannins.
Merlot makes plump, succulent wines to drink young or opulently massive wines for aging. Has silky, blackberry and currant fruit, with spice, earth, tobacco and chocolate notes, and soft tannins.
Petite Sirah makes bold, full-bodied wines with aromas and flavors of dark fruit, spice and herbs, which give the grape a distinct flavor. Like Tannat and Manto Negro, has extremely sturdy tannins.
Syrah has seductively dense, rich, chewy black berry aromas and flavors, with notes of tar, wood smoke, bacon, leather, chocolate, and sometimes violets. The tannins are firm yet elegant.
Zinfandel shows ripe, sweet aromas and flavors of black fruits (plums, raisins, dates), with pepper, spice and chocolate notes.
St. Francis brings the same quality philosophy to the making of RED/WHITE SPLASH as it does to the fine varietal wines the winery is renowned for.
