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.

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.

Each of our handcrafted wines has distinct personality that speaks fluently in every glass. When all are savored the complete character and expression of our prized Napa Valley terroir can be experienced.
