St. Francis Sonoma County Pinot Noir 2021


Saint Francis has built an incredible reputation in Sonoma County in large part because of Katie, but also due to their perfect location. Their vineyards are ideally located in the cooler parts of Sonoma County, the areas particularly susceptible to the Pacific Ocean morning fog.

The Pinot Noir made here has more time to naturally ripen on the vine, imparting deep, concentrated flavors while also retaining gorgeous natural acidity.

The best part about tasting with Katie was how down-to-earth she was. I wish all my tastings were like that. We talked about the wine industry, her region, and what the future of California wine holds, without once mentioning scores or any of that. My kind of conversation.

But, after doing a little digging, my favorite wine of the tasting, the 2021 Sonoma County Pinot Noir from Saint Francis, turned out to be a highly decorated wine that deserves to be gulped down by the Nicholas Wines masses. Not only is it delicious and fairly priced, it comes with 97 points and a Double Gold from the North Coast Wine Challenge last year, as well as a 92-point review from Wine Enthusiast.

97 Points (Double Gold), 2023 North Coast Wine Challenge
The 2021 Sonoma County bottling has a great color along with balance with firm tannins and tons of complexity.

92 Points, Wine Enthusiast
A plummy richness is backed by some raspberry snap in this full-bodied, focused and flavorful wine. Vivid black cherries, cloves and a touch of toasted oak give the wine plenty to savor.
