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.
External Reviews for Franciscan Magnificat
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.
APPEARANCE: Deep garnet AROMA: Enticing aromas of dark cherry and black plum with a dark chocolate background and notes of sage and black tea. Appealing and complex. FLAVORS: 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. - Winery ** Only 5 in Stock **
This is dense and chewy, but not tiring to drink, thanks to fresh acidity and an edgy, gravelly feel that drives the blackberry, currant and sweet spice notes. The long finish has great briary grip, with notes of garrigue and hot stone checking in. B... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2005 Vieux Telegraphe, Domaine du Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau 750ml
Wine Spectator ReviewRated 91Ripe, with nice kirsch and raspberry fruit backed by darker hints of applewood-smoked bacon, plum sauce and dark licorice. Juicy and long on the finish, this stretches out nicely. A great second wine. Best from 2009 through 2025.
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.
The Wine News ReviewRated 94Deep crimson hue. Reserved scents of dust, baker's chocolate, black cherry and wintergreen. Big, refined tannins and ripe flavors of cassis and raspberry liqueur. Layers of mocha, sweet tobacco and menthol in the endless black cherry-driven close. 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 5%Merlot, 2% Malbec.
