Dark red-more-than-purple in the glass. Oaky and smokey nose. Very pleasant on the tip of the tongue. Slight fruty sweetness--plums. As the wine travels through the palate tannis pop up along with some tartness. Very nice lingering finish. I would suggest is that this is not a wine for long aging, although it is an emminantly drinkable wine right now. US$18.99 at Costco.

Nose of ripe cassis withhints of candied cherry and currant. Some very slight eucalyptus and sweet oak vanilla. On the palate, it's rich and dry. Ripe cassis, currant, black plum and black cherry with some light cocoa and oak spice. Good acid balance to this so it should age and progress nicely with a few more years' aging. I think Franciscan always delivers a solid moderately priced, good value Napa cab. 86 pts.

Sweet on the nose, taste sugary, prune and dried fruits, warm. "Narcotic" [From "Chateauneuf du Pape & Friends" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 15 September 2013.]

Special Case Discount! Magnificat is one of the original Meritage blends in California.The wine is founded on Cabernet Sauvignon, but true to Meritage, other Bordeaux varietals are added to give roundness, structure, and rich complexity.

For over 10 years, The Blend has been one of Chile’s top red wines, expressing power and finesse. A blend of 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Syrah, 25% Carmenere and 18% Merlot. Veramonte is owned by Agustin Huneeus, creator of some the world’s best red blends including Magnificat and Quintessa. In Primus he utilizes winemaking techniques perfected in Napa Valley for his top Cabernets and Red Blends. The grapes for Primus are meticulously double sorted before crush. Yields are kept to a minimum so the expression of the fruit is pure and intense. The wine is aged in the finest French and American oak barrels for 14 months. It scores 90 points every vintage and this 2009 is no exception. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 saying" Notes of cassis, cola, cedar, tobacco, lemon and a twinge of eucalyptus comprise the bouquet on this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carmenere and Merlot. It tastes of cassis, blackberry, herb and chocolate; the finish is solid and minty, with a suggestion of cigar tobacco. This rocks hard, but with focus."

A bruising, black/purple-hued, full-bodied wine, the 2009 Certan de May displays notes of charcuterie, smoked game, herbs, black truffles, roasted meats, cassis and black cherries.

From one of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape greats, this white blend will entice with aromas of honeysuckle, freshly cut grass, and almonds. On the palate, the lasting acidity wraps around flavors of baked pears and grapefruit pith.

A juicy, gutsy style, with a core of crushed plum, braised fig and warm red and black cherry confiture notes backed by flashes of apple wood and tobacco on the open, lively finish. - According to the Wine Spectator
