Winemaker's Notes

From each vintage we compose Magnificat, a red Meritage wine that best expresses the unique terroir of our Oakville Estate. Blending creates a harmonious wine which is ultimately more than each of its individual elements: Cabernet Sauvignon for structure, Merlot for suppleness, and Cabernet Franc for spice and aroma. Determining the exact composition of the final blend is an art form, making each vintage distinctive and unique.

Appearance: Deep ruby red.

Aroma: Cherry, black licorice, vanilla.

Flavor: Rich blackcherry, plum, chocolate, cedar and spice with rich supple tannins and a long finish.

Alcohol: 13.5%
