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.

Editorial Reviews for Franciscan Magnificat
Butterscotch and black cherry on the nose with just a touch of herbs and a piercing violet top note. On the palate this is very fresh with great acids and unobtrusive tannins that are very soft but add volume in the mouth. The fruit has a muddy, earthy tone that adds nice depth and a touch of complexity to the pure fruit. 88pts
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.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar ReviewMedium red. Precise raspberry and redcurrant aromas complicated by assertive garrigue and mineral notes. Highly concentrated, very pure berry flavors are nicely framed by gentle acidity. Finishes silky and very long, with compelling sweetness. Daniel Brunel rates this wine alongside his 1978 and 1998 for sheer quality.Wine Advocate ReviewRated 92-94A beautiful wine is the 2005 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape. A saturated dark ruby, it offers up notes of seaweed wrappers (nori) intermixed with truffle, black raspberry, cherry, and some black currant, pepper, and iodine. Fleshy, full-bodied, with good acidity, moderately high tannins, and a long, rich finish, this wine will require 2-4 years of bottle age then drink well for close to 20 years. Drink 2009 - 2027.
Wine Tasting NotesRuby red. 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 on the lingering finish.

Dark red with an opaque pink rim. Aromas of potpourri, eucalyptus and tobacco with some sweet vanilla notes. Pleasing fruit on the medium-bodied palate blends with a good amount of tannin to provide structiure to go the distance. Drinking nicely n... Cory Gowan. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from in Italy. 2005 Drei Dona Cabernet Sauvignon Forli Magnificat 750ml
Quite lush for a 2005, with rich, forward raspberry and boysenberry fruit layered with mocha, fruitcake and Christmas pudding notes. Intense graphite underpinning keeps it all honest. The superlong finish is loaded with raspberry ganache and Turkish coffee notes. Just grows and grows in the glass. Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2009 through 2029.
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
Geringe Erträge, perfekte Reife, eine lange Maischegärung und der Ausbau in Eichenbarriques während vierzehn Monaten haben gemeinsam zur Geburt dieses Rouge d'Enfer 2004¯ mit seiner beeindruckenden Konzentration und Materie beigetragen. Seine Aromen reichen von Anklängen an Wildbeeren über schwarze Früchte bis zu Gewürznoten. Am Gaumen offenbart sich seine Wucht in einer Tanninstruktur, die gut in die intensive, edle Frucht eingebettet ist."
