Sweet and soft on the nose with early accents of mocha, sweet tobacco leaf, allspice and brown sugar joined by dried bay leaf and black currants. On entry this shows excellent integration and while there is plenty of acidity here, it is held nicely in check by the rich yet not weighty fruit. The oak is well measured as well, yielding a rather seamless wine with attractive herb, toast and blackcurrant flavors; elegant and bright with refreshing acidity on the moderately long finish which ends with cinnamon dusted red berry fruits. This probably won't wow many, but it drinks quite well in a rather classic modern Napa Valley style. Snappy, clean and crisp. 89pts

Rich, round, and full-bodied; layered with blackberry, cherry, dried plums, and a hint of cocoa; generous weight on the palate and smooth, mouth-filling tannins; the finish lingers with flavors of rich cassis and black cherry.

Deep crimson. Lively cinnamon aromas, with black cherry, cocoa, espresso coffee bean, nutmeg. Rich flavors and an exquisite mouth-feel, velvety tannins, ripe fruit balanced with notes of chocolate and French vanilla. A lengthy, elegant finish.

Deep garnet color. A rich bouquet of dark cherry, cocoa, clove, plum, tobacco and toasted oak, with delicate notes of coffee and truffle. Layered and complex. Rich and full on the palate with a supple mouthfeel and opulent layers of plum, cherry, anise, and mocha. Smooth and concentrated, the wine exhibits richly woven texture with dark, dense fruit on the long finish.

The 2010 Magnificat is composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. It possesses a deep purple color along with sweet creme de cassis, charcoal and background oak characteristics. There is no trace of herbaceousness in this full-bodied, opulent, nicely textured, chewy, long 2010. It is an impressive effort from Franciscan. 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. - S.H.

Shows the bell pepper and jalapeño side of Cabernet in a very pleasant and easy-to-enjoy style. Dried berry, savory herb, dill and loamy earth contribute to the flavor profile. Drink now through 2020

Good price for a Cabernet this elegant and classy. It’s not an something for the cellar, but offers everything it has now, with ripe blackberry, black currant and cedar flavors that are wrapped into sturdy, smooth tannins.

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
