Vieux Telegraph Cdp 15 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.

Soft and fruity; reminiscent of an ageing Spanish Tempranillo. Quite a light wine; personal taste being for a more full bodied wine. Very pleasant.

Incredible amount of tannin. Heavy on the Merlot in the blend. Dry and mouth smacking. Opens up with time if you let it sit. Wonderful notes of oak to an overall dark berry taste. Medium bodied and complex.

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!

Popped and poured. Nose of earth, blueberry and tar, following to the palate. Has that distinctive Stolpman earthiness that can be overpowering, but, as with the Syrah, is VERY nice here. For sub-$20, this is a killer wine. Must buy more, as Stolpman has discontinued this cuvee. Outstanding - 91 points.

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.

A lot of candied fruit covering up a lot of tannin. Good with beef. An in your face wine. A little softer tannins and less overripe fruit would be more to my taste.

Ruby-red. Alluringly perfumed bouquet of red- and black currant, cherry, musky herbs and mocha. Dry, focused and complex, with currant, cherry pit, fruitcake and candied rose flavors given shape by slightly gritty tannins. finishes a bit dry, but with firm grip. Give this some air and drink up.

Mature black fruit and a velvety palate recommend this bodega's top of the line offering. The grapes are from a selected vineyard plot that was planted in 1920. Powerful yet elegant, lush yet complex, it features potent, sweet tannins, graphite, chocolate and chewy dark fruit, and excellent acidity.

With only 100 cases made, the Pesus is a special treat. The wine comes from a tiny parcel of 80+ year old Tempranillo vines that are blended with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Notes of boysenberry, cherry liquor, smoked meat, and licorice combine together to create this amazing wine.

This is really beautiful and balanced with berry and light vanilla character. Full-bodied densely balanced yet refined and caressing. Beautiful wine. From American owner Colin Ferrenbach. Best after 2006. 4 830 cases made. Wine Spectator.
