Bold Sonoma Wine for a Taste of Summer

Summertime means big, bold flavors of succulent, ripe stone fruits and savory, juicy cuts of meat grilled to perfection. Complement these luscious tastes of summer with the exceptional wines of Sonoma County winemaking pioneer, St. Francis Winery:

2010 Sonoma County Chardonnay ($15.99)
Aromas of ripe Asian pear and tropical fruit combine with fresh minerality. This medium-bodied Sonoma County Chardonnay displays a creamy texture with bright flavors of green apple and Meyer lemon, followed by crisp acidity and a strong, lingering finish.

2008 Sonoma County Old Vine Zinfandel ($23.99)
A classic old vine Zinfandel that pays tribute to its heritage, this wine offers aromas of cigar box, raspberry, pepper and spice. Flavors of ripe black cherry and vanilla bean are followed by a long, luscious finish.

Available nationwide at retailers and restaurants, St. Francis Sonoma County wines are handcrafted by Katie Madigan and reflect the diverse terroir of Sonoma County – a blend of plush, ripe flavors from valley floor fruit balanced by crisp, concentrated flavors from mountainside fruitThe fruit the wines are 100% hand-picked, 100% Sonoma County fruit.
