St. Francis Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 – Smooth and Balanced @StFrancisWinery @NCLFreestyle

We had the St. Francis Cabernet Sauvignon on our cruise 2 weeks ago on the NCL Pearl.  Since we had the wine package which provides a 20% discount if you purchase 6 bottles or more at the beginning of the voyage, we chose this bottle for our meal at Cagney’s (the steakhouse) on our first night.  This Cab comes from a widespread solid vintage, and offers a balanced, fruit forward, but restrained flavor profile that went well with steak and seafood equally.  If you like Cabernet and prefer a more subdued wine, this is a reasonable choice.
