Blackberry, Dark Fruit, Chocolate
The wine opens with aromatic notes of black cherry and dark plum with appealing undertones of clove and vanilla. The velvet-smooth palate adds blackberry, dark fruit and chocolate characteristics, which blend with complex hints of cedar and toasted oak. Fine tannins impart texture and length on the finish. Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon alongside hearty, rich meats, like ribeye steak, roasted lamb, pork chops and grilled gourmet burgers.

Black Currant, Blackberry, Fig, Spice
<b>ABOUT FRANCISCAN</b><br> Founded in 1972 as an homage to the Friars who brought old world viticulture to California, Franciscan wines remain a distinct pleasure – complex and vibrant, yet supple and lingering. We strive to over deliver in all phases of the tasting experience. Our Magnificat Meritage is a rich and harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cabernet Franc inspired by (and named for) a J.S. Bach masterpiece. <br><br> <b>VINTAGE NOTES</b><br> The 2018 growing season began with plentiful winter rains that gave to a consistently warm and steady that eased into a mild-Fall, resulting in a slightly later harvest that delivered beautifully developed fruit with marked complexity. <br><br> <b>TASTING NOTES</b><br> The wine is composed primarily with Napa Valley’s most renowned variety, Cabernet Sauvignon, bringing a mouth-filling palate marked by black currant, blackberry, fig and complex spice notes. This is balanced by 8% Malbec, which adds layers of dried fruit and leather as well as enhances the richness and structure of the wine. An addition of 3% Cabernet Franc contributes complexity and brightness with suggestions of cranberry and raspberry, underscored with hints of thyme and herbs. The beautiful, round palate is supported by fine-grained tannins that add appealing texture to this persistent, lengthy wine.
