2010 Franciscan Estate Magnificat Napa Valley
Appearance: Deep garnet
Aromas: Multi-layered and remarkably complex, this wine offers an impressive array of aromas. Rich black plum, crème de cassis, dusty cocoa, sweet anise, and vanilla, imbued with subtle undertones of toffee and warm cardamom.
Flavors: A wine of tremendous resonance and presence, there’s a vibrant, delicious rush of ripe black cherry and plum at the entry that unfolds into a luscious mid palate with cassis, ripe blackberry, cocoa, and black truffle. The rich and voluminous mouthfeel is tempered by supple, velvety tannins, and a long cassis-infused finish.
