Jonathan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Bold cab, full bodied, pepper and spice. Nice texture and weight. Would like a bit more fruit and overall smoothness to really get to the next level.
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

St. Francis Cabernet Sauvignon from the Sonoma County is a blend of mountain, hillside and valley floor Cab that provides the perfect complement of flavour, texture, and balance to this value priced gem! Deep ruby red, the nose shows black currant, black plum, stewed dark fruit, tobacco, and spice. Delicious! Fine integrated tannis give texture whilst keeping the soft and luscious mouthfeel. This Cab is a great choice to enjoy with premium grilled cuts of beef. Enjoy 2016 - 2025. Tasted July 2016. 92 points. Matt Steeves- www.quercusvino.ca

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
