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.
