Primus Veramonte 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Magnificat is a hand-selected blend of the vintage’s finest lots of fruit. Every year, winemaker Janet Myers tastes hundreds of barrel samples to craft Magnificat, a wine as seamless and harmonious as the Bach masterwork it honors in name. Varietal Composition: 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 2% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot. Appearance: Deep red. Aroma: Plum and dried cherries are intertwined with hints of tobacco, rich chocolate and soft violet. Flavors: Luscious notes of dark cherry, clove and cocoa fill the mouth. Elegant and soft, the supple tannins infuse the palate and bring the wine to a long finish with hints of sweet toasty oak and a touch of cocoa.

WOW! This wine has reached it's pinnacle I believe and I am so glad I found this rogue bottle. Deep, rich and well balanced while being super concentrated. This is a powerful, yet graceful cab and it drinking exquisitely right now. If you can find it, drink it now!

Had this twice in the last 2-3 weeks and enjoyed. Nice, complex, what you would expect from a Napa Cab, nothing extraordinary but very solid.

Tasting Notes:

"Rich and bold with intense flavors of chocolate dipped black fruit, accompanied by notes of sweet oak. Firm and structured ripe tannins lead to a lengthy, fruit driven finish. "
