2007 Gaja Ca Marcanda "Magari"

SKU #1061824

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The 2007 Magari boasts a gorgeous nose redolent of grilled herbs, menthol, spices and dark fruit. This is a relatively lithe Magari that convinces for its length, balance and finessed personality. Magari is 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017." (10/10) 92 points Wine Spectator "Earthy and very rich, offering spice, berry and dark cherry character. Velvety and pretty. An opulent wine. Best after 2012." (10/10) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Magari is an uniquely nostalgic Italian word that loosely translates as 'if only.' If only Angelo Gaja released a Magari of this caliber every vintage. The wine is smooth and rich with lingering tones of cherry and sweet spice." (04/11)
