St Francis Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Black cherry, raspberry, and cedar on the nose

Full bodied and fruity on the palate

Mixed berries and eucalyptus on the finish

This is a decent wine that I put a few extra years of bottle age on in my cellar. I don't know what the direct effects of that have been, but the wine seems well integrated and smooth. The black cherry and berries are prevalent throughout, and the cedar layer turns to eucalyptus on the finish.

I paid $16 for the wine, while $22 is a more representative price now for the current vintage. Raise a glass!
