Description

Delicious, plump and black fruit forward, the Legend Proprietary blend marries the best blocks of Syrah from our Annadel Gap Vineyard with Cabernet Sauvignon from an organic vineyard in the Knights Valley. Mouth-filling in texture, the wine has heft and weight while being fantastically balanced in the finish. In its third vintage, this superbly expressive blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Mourv dre was fermented by winemakers Philippe Melka and Maayan Koschitzky in closed-top stainless-steel tanks as well as a French oak upright tank and was aged in (30% new) French oak for 20 months. Scents of jasmine, plum blossom, and mocha are mirrored on the palate, which adds a graceful array of floral notes while ascending to heavenly levels with robust flavors of black raspberry, coffee, and dots of white pepper that cause the mouth to salivate.

The 2018 Legend Proprietary Red is an interesting blend of 45% Syrah, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Mourv dre, and the rest Cabernet Franc, Tannat, and a splash of Petit Verdot. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by loads of blackberry and blueberries fruit intermixed with plenty of peppery herbs, menthol, and graphite. This rich, full-bodied effort has a delicious juiciness, polished tannins, and a notable sense of class and balance.
