Wow it hits every taste bud; dark chocolate, black cherry, smoky finish. I love the intensity.
86/100: Color: Deep dark red. Nose: Dark red fruit. Very strong nose. First taste: Very fruity and sweet, initially. Then the dryness hits you. At first, the tannins really overwhelmed any flavor qualities i noticed, but after the 2nd/3rd taste, it grew on me. I actually liked that mouth puckering feeling from the tannins. The mouth feel was pretty smooth, not very thin. The finish was mediocre, around 10 seconds for me, but I was always left wanting another taste. Near the end of the glass, I did start to get some hints of vanilla that everyone else is talking about, but not as strong for me. Decent cab, but not grr-r-r-r-eat!
Quite dry, with most of the taste hidden by tannins the firsthour or two. but on the second night it really opened up. Vanilla, strawberries and espresso nose. Still dry and tannic, but vanilla and strawberry pie, whipped cream topping and crust included, are all here, with a hint of espresso and tar. Surprisingly long finish for a moderately priced cab. Good value to dollar, but not great on its own.
This red is great!
Just didnt do it for me. I was left waiting for the cab features that I enjoy. The smoke and ok were all i got. The dryness did hit late and at the end of the glass I got a hint of vanilla. Just an ok wine for me.
Very unusual. Nice blend. Very smooth.
External Reviews for Primus Veramonte
Thoroughly Napa Valley in its sleepy richness, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (68 percent) with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec offers abundant baked plum flavor set into tannins firm as iron filings. A cool spice in the finish keeps it terse and hard-edged, needing cellar time to soften and expand into the jammy fruit and stylish, pastry-scented oak.
A Napa claret, this blends cabernet sauvignon (70 percent) and merlot (29 percent) with a hint of petit verdot. The wine's austere red fruit has a tartness that almost pales to peach. Tannins darken it, while the firm, lovely fruit persists, weighted for roast veal or the dark meat of game birds.
Shows lots of spice, pepper, berry and olive scents, turning much tighter on the palate, with a trim band of flavors framed by cedary oak. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2015.
One of the first wines out of Napa Valley to create a Bordeaux style blend, Franciscan Magnificat has proved time and time again, in competitions and with high wine scores, that it is a true leader in the California industry. Magnifcat is composed of 50% Merlot, 49% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc. The wine displays enticing aromas of black cherry, plum, chocolate, sage and a bit of black tea. The flavors are well structured and supple showing vibrant plum, rich chocolate and black pepper. The finish lingers on and on with cocoa like tannins. A great wine for Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache drinkers!
Surprisingly tannic and closed for an '01 Napa, but this may be a stylistic decision. It's a very fine wine, well balanced and rich in oak and blackberry-cherry fruit. Totally dry, but those tannins really lock up the flavors. Best after 2010.
The 2002 Magnificat, a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, reveals additional tannin, force, power, depth, and exuberance. It should age well for a decade.
Magnificat is one of the original Napa Valley Meritage wines. First created by winemaking legend, the late Andre Tchelistcheff. It's a harmonious "composition" of Bordeaux varietal grapes, hence the name which pays tribute to another famous "composition" by J.S. Bach. Full of balck cherry, plum and spice flavors this rich Cab-based beauty is a wine with baroque complexity and timeless appeal.
