this is not a quaffing wine. it needs an hour of decanting and MUST be paired with food...we paired it with burritos and it was terrific. I had a chorizo buritto and my wife had a veggie one. Not as full bodied as i had expected but that didn't matter. Lots of oak, but not in a bad way.

Half an hour after opening, the color was translucent, like an Oregon pinot, but brick red, trending strongly to orange near the rim. The nose was lovely, starting wtih coffee, then hazelnut liquor, buttered toast, and blackberries. Blackberries were clear on the palate as well, along with cassis, followed by sage and licorice, all over an underlying mushroom earthiness. Tannins did not show up until the finish, which was long, smooth and had a creamy softness.Three hours after the bottle was opened the nose had changed. It was more obviously earthy with boatloads of chocolate. Blackberries and vanilla cream rounded it out. The three hours made a big difference on the palate, which is now far fruitier, with cherries and blackberries dominating, the mushrooms and sage now in the background. Add strawberry and caramel in the midpalate. This is a very nice wine, even lovely for the price. The finish is still soft, creamy, and long.More tomorrow.Second night now. The wine was open last night for about 5 hours, then closed with a Vacuu-Vin stopper. It is still tremendously aromatic, even more floral than last night. Lavender is coming through along with black currant, blackberries and pepper. Plenty of black fruit and plums on the palate, perhaps even a tiny touch of cranberry, along with a pinch of pepper. That said, it is far more one-dimensional than last night, giving its initial fruit and not much to follow. There is also that slighly oxidized bruised plum taste you get in a wine that is over the hill. Not, mind you, blatant port-like oxidation, merely a sense of flatness and age.Conclusion? This was a good wine, even a great wine with the QPR, on the first night. The second night is was on its way down hill. That probably means it is ready to drink now but right now. Don't leave this in

Really awesome when first released, so much so that I remember it in 2010. Rich, perfectly balanced fruit and tannin, lovely smooth mouth feel, and long fragrant finish. One of the few California cabs I really like - with properly balanced tannins so that you don't feel like you're chewing on barrel innards.

Reine und kraftvolle Aromen in der Nase in ausgezeichneter Harmonie mit den Holznoten. Grosszügige Struktur im Mund, geschmackvoll und mit viel Körper, feine und milde Tannine.

Medium-full ruby. Youthfully austere aromas of bitter cherry, raw currant, tobacco leaf, licorice and shoe polish. Dense, fresh and concentrated, with cool black fruit flavors complicated by an herbal nuance. Quite backward today, but already shows l... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2001 Magnificat is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot. It displays more force, depth, and delineation than the 2000, in addition to copious quantities of toasty oak, sweet, chunky, chocolaty, black currant flavors, and a medium-bodied, easy-going personality. It should drink well for a decade.

Viña Real Tinto Reserva 2001 - CVNE: Aus dem sehr guten Weinjahr 2001 resultiert dieser im Glas glänzende, rubinrote Reserva. Im Glas begeistert er mit einem intensiven Bukett mit Aromen von reifen roten Beeren und würzigen Anklängen von Leder, Vanille und Rauch. Der Vina Real Reserva ist ein sehr ausgewogener, angenehm zu trinkender Rotwein von samtiger Fülle. Er harmoniert besonders gut zu Fleischpasteten, mit Rindfleisch gefüllten Maispfannkuchen und würzigen Bratengerichten.Anbauregion: RiojaWeingut: CVNE - Compañía Vinícola del Norte de EspañaRebsorte: Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano, MazueloInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,75 %Säuregehalt: 6 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16°CLagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (18 Monate) Rotwein > Spanien > Rioja
