Magnus Power Red Gift Pack

Regular price $0.00 $105.00 Sale

Magnus - a powerful name with a commanding presence.

The Bravado Merlot and The Profane Shiraz.

We call this the ‘power pack’ - dense, rich, lush reds - from our newest small producer. 

Both are the inaugural release with uber talented Jacqueline Yoakum at the helm. She is consulting winemaker for Italics, a cult cab.

The Profane 

WHAT WE TASTED: Immediate deep aromas, dense mouth feel, spices and red peppercorns firing off in your mouth.  But, co-fermented hint of Viognier is there with apricot and floral notes, subtle, as it should be. While the Syrah's heritage is cool climate Northern Rhone Hermitage, this New World style is more fruit forward. This is not meaty or gamey, rather its the land of the living!

  • Las Madres Vineyard in Carneros is called the "To Kalon of Syrah vineyards" by Thomas Rivers Brown

The Bravado

WHAT WE TASTED: Blown away by candied violets, strawberry and cranberry all over in this lively, vibrant wine. Seamless oak. Rich and full, have your stuffing with meat! You might think it’s a Cab if we didn’t tell you. William Hill property rocks it.

  • Broken Rock Vineyard on Soda Canyon Road at the base of Atlas Peak, is highly sought out for its “Cab like” quality

Wrapped and packed in a sleek black box for powerful gift giving.
