The Merlot grapes of St. Francis primarily come from it's three estate vineyards located in the heart of Sonoma Valley. The soils of these vineyards vary from a mixture of loams, clays, volcanics intermingled with rock and heavy gravel. This type of soil and rock mixture promotes a very intense grape. The microclimates are different, varying from hillside slopes in the nearby Mayacama Mountains to the moderated cooler climate of the valley floor. The grapes are hand-harvested and crushed into temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation is completed the different lots are pressed and racked into French and American oak barrels to complete the aging process. The wine is then bottled without filtration and held for eight months prior to release.
