Franciscan Magnificat 2005
Elegant, well-structured mouthfeel, with cherries, rich chocolate, black pepper and vibrant plum flavors filling the palate. Very supple, with fine texture and firm structure, giving an immediately approachable richness. The finish is a seamless continuation of fruit and cocoa-like tannins.

Very good. Had with steak and I enjoyed quite a bit.
Ignore the speculator review , I can get this wine for the mid to low thirties. For that price this works, I'm drinking a glass as I write this.
A very nice Bordeaux blend - went perfectly with my venison steak. Super silky smooth on the palate, with traditional hints of tobacco and leather supported by a well-balanced base. 91/100
A meritage; my 5th wine tasted at the winery. Aromas complete with some pepper, an earthiness and spice. Palate filled with dark fruit, black currants, blackberries, and plums. Structurally balanced and nice complex length.
cedar/dark cherry scent, dry, tobacco taste, has a smoky finish
This was just ok for me. A little to acidic without much fruit. A little one dimensional.
A lot of acid on the start, coming off a little prickly. This was quickly replaced by an extreme burst of black currants. A rich fruity wine overall and smooth through the mid and after palate. Still needs to age.

Aromas of rich chocolate, coffee, and cassis with notes of mixed dark fruit and raspberry. Extraordinarily rich and mouth-filling, with flavors of cassis, coffee and toasted oak that grace a well-structured body, full of texture with ripe, supple tannins
Wine Tasting NotesDeep violet with crimson edges. Dark ripe black cherries, licorice, mountain herbs, mocha and fine integrated oak. Thick, deep and explosive. Chocolate dipped black fruit, enveloped in rich sweet oak, firm and structured ripe tannins. Long, fruit driven finish.
Intense blackberry, chocolate and floral aromas. Full-bodied, with amazing texture of soft tannins and ripe fruit. All in balance. So long. Goes on and on. Loving and tender. This reminds me of 1950, although I wasn't around to taste it from barrel! ... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Vieux Chateau Certan 750ml
