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!

An excellent deal. I bought a case and carried it a mile home. I'm still smiling on the eighth bottle.

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.

Beautiful rich red berries with a smooth milk chocolate note in the flavors. Yummy.

Aromatic with black cherry flavors and a silky texture. Managed to be full, open, and airy at the same time.

Good red-ruby. Highly complex, cabernet franc-dominated aromas of berries, dark chocolate, leather, tobacco and spices. Dense and fat but with a firm edge of acidity leavening the wine's layered texture. A lush and creamy wine with terrific spine. Cl... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Vieux Chateau Certan 3000ml

Red wine - 2004 - Domaine de la Charbonni

External Review

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.

External Review

Dichtes Purpur mit rubinroten Reflexen. Kaffee und konzentrierte Pflaumen in der tiefgründigen Nase, unterlegt mit feinem Kokos-Schokoladenduft, auch Kirschenkuchen und schwarzer Holunder. Kompakte Tannine im noch jugendlich wirkenden Gaumen, nun auch Brombeeren und Dörrzwetschgen, feine Mineralik in der viel Lagerpotential versprechenden Mitte, grossartige Balance zwischen stoffiger Textur und süsslichem Extrakt, dezente Cassiswürze im blaubeerig ausklingenden Finale. Unbedingt einkellern und Dekantieren falls jung getrunken.

External Review

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.

External Review

Sattes Purpur, zum Rand hin aufhellend. Vielfältiges Bouquet von Brombeeren und etwas Cassis, mineralische Noten, feine Würze. Enorm kraftvolle und von einer besonderen Eleganz geprägter Gaumen, schwarze Frucht, auch etwas Tabak und Lakritze, gut strukturiert, von einer verführerischen Fruchtsüsse erfüllter langer Abgang.

External Review

Fresh and lively, this is medium-bodied, with snappy wild berry and raspberry flavors shaded by spicy, peppery notes. Ends with supple, elegant, easy-drinking tannins. Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah. Drink now through 2012. -- J.L. -88 Points, Wine Spectator, December 31, 2008. A Chateauneuf-style blend, based on Grenache, that's clean fresh and savory. It shows cherry, currant, anise and herb flavors that are wrapped into a soft tecture. Oak adds a pleasant, subtle note of smoke.88 points, Wine Enthusiast, November 15, 2008
