2015 Westwood "Legend" Proprietary Red Blend, Sonoma County, Magnum
A complex nose of blackberry and preserved strawberries, cedar and pine needle, smoked pork and jamon serrano, black pepper and pie crust. The supple palate opens with ripe black and red fruits. Profile shifts seamlessly into cured meats and barbeque, cedar, chocolate-covered cherries, cinnamon and black pepper and finishes with elegant, soft tannins and excellent length.
95 Points - Tasting Panel
A floral perfume with accents of red plum and black pepper. The palate is a silk road of gritty chocolate tannins that leads to red plum, dark chocolate cherries, jasmine, and grilled meat with soy sauce. The finish is pleasurable with a creamy cedar note.
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
This is a proprietary estate-grown blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Zinfandel, aged in French oak (45% new). Savory flavors of earth, black licorice, tobacco, meat and leather are lifted on the palate by fresh blueberry and blackberry tones, dusted in chocolate shavings.
