Sip of the Day

September 24, 2021

Day #267 of the year.

St. Francis Sonoma County Merlot

Fall is in the air, and the slight chill calls for a more substantial wine this evening. So cozy up with a good film or a book and a velvety St. Francis Sonoma County Merlot. This California classic with notes of plum and chocolate is perfect for sipping on its own, and should you get a little peckish: it pairs great with cheese straws, brie, camembert, gouda, even blue cheese. So, kick back and enjoy this wine’s luscious texture and smooth tannins; you deserve to be spoiled sometimes – cheers!
