Day #[wpdts-day-of-year start=”post-created”] of the year.

St. Francis Sonoma County Pinot Noir

If you need a dose of inspiration and encouragement, pick up “In the Company of Women: Inspiration and Advice from over 100 Makers, Artists, and Entrepreneurs” by Grace Bonney. It’s a beautiful, full-color coffee table book that you’ll actually sit down and read like a novel, front to back. The women featured come from all over the world, each one doing something creative and courageous. If there was one thing I’d change, I would have liked to see a broader range of fields represented—such as winemaking! To the women featured, I raise a glass of St. Francis Pinot Noir from Sonoma County made by the talented Katie Madigan. It is juicy and medium-bodied with hints of raspberry and clove followed by bright, crisp flavors of pomegranate, cherry, and a touch of licorice. Katie noted that winemaking, to her, is the perfect combination of science and creativity. She’d fit right in in these pages of “In the Company of Women.”

Tasting Notes

This ruby-hued Pinot Noir offers an abundance of tart red cherry and baking spice aromas followed by a burst of flavors with notes of pomegranate, juicy strawberry, fresh raspberry and chamomile tea. This expressive wine has a soft and silky texture that finishes with a bit of toasted nut and orange zest.
