2018 Legend

2018 Legend

Following two consecutive releases that received 96 points. 2018 marks the third annual release of this show stopping Cabernet driven red blend created by Rockstar winemakers Philippe Melka & Maayan Koschitzsky. Dark ruby in color with obsequious fragrances of dark chocolate, black currant, cigar box, and Bing cherries. On the palate, firm age worthy tannins are underscored by notes of rich berry flavors, with good natural acidity providing length and freshness.  The power of Cabernet Sauvignon complements perfectly the expressions of the Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre in this deliciously hedonistic wine.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
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.
Winemaker Notes
Philippe Melka and Maayan Koschitzky, consultants to some of Napa's most highly regarded vineyards, had full control of winemaking and blending of the 2018 Legend. Like their critically acclaimed 2016 and 2017 Legend, their goal was to craft this proprietary blend, bringing together the best from our own biodynamically farmed Estate, Annadel Gap Vineyard, complimented with specially sourced organic and sustainable wines from Sonoma County and Napa Valley. The wine was fermented in closed-top stainless steel tanks, open-top stainless steel tanks, and open-top French oak upright tanks, with an average of 22% whole cluster pressed, 3 days cold soak and 19 days on skins. Aged in 30% new Frenck oak for 20 months.
