Winemaker's Notes

(From 2007 Vintage) Supple and inviting with aromas of dark cherry and ripe Italian plums, the 2007 Magnificat is a rich and elegant interpretation of the traditional Bordeaux blend. Accentuated with notes of clove and tobacco, the Magnificat delivers Franciscan's signature concentration in deep layers of integrated boysenberry, dark cherry, and cocoa flavors. The mouthfeel is full and round, with warm complexity and notes of anise and mocha on the lengthy finish.
