St. Francis 1996 Reserve Merlot (Sonoma Valley)

Lots of Merlot flavor, but some unusual elements on the nose. Aromas of oak, basil, tomato, even caramelized onion yield to more expected flavors. The palate offers archetypal cherry, sour plum, coffee and chocolate notes. Decently stuffed and well structured, just a bit uneven.
