Juicy and succulent yet toweringly full-bodied. Velvet texture and joyous mouth-feel. A full-bodied, savoury Californian Cabernet with aromas of campfire and smoke from toasty oak aging. Juicy and delicious. Pair with barbecued meats.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled meats, slow-braised long beef ribs, pepper steak.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This is a full bodied California Cab with the signature smoke on the nose coupled with flavors of blackberry, spice, licorice, leather and smoke. Delicious.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Deep dark and inky, opaque as can be! Aromas entice with cherry, strawberry, light plum, tomato, plants, tobacco and toasted vanilla beans. Flavours are big with black cherries, dried figs, prunes, milk chocolate and a fruity sweet ending. Medium acidity and tannins with a full body and medium plus finish. Generous vanilla notes. Suitable to pair with hickory smoked almonds, smoked cheeses and dried fruit. 91 points - tasted April 2018
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Five different estates contributed to this Cabernet Sauvignon. It is pretty heavily structured.
Deep, opaque ruby red.
Lots of brooding spice and a tremendous whap of oak spice. High alcohol that peeks out: 14.8%.
Tons of cherry, currant, cassis, plum, coffee, tobacco, and charcoal.
Put this alongside coffee-rubbed t-bones.
From Sonoma County, California. St. Francis (2014) is a powerful, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, juicy blackberry, spicy and smoke from oak ageing. Pair with a grilled sirloin steak. - Community Wine Reviews
