Winemakers Philippe Melka and Maayan Koschitzky were the hands and minds behind the latest vintage of this wine, which is more than deserving of its name. It's a California red with a French accent, blending 46% Cabernet Sauvignon with 25% Syrah, 19% Mourvedre, and 10% Grenache; the Rhone varieties were grown on Westwood Estate's Biodynamically farmed Annadel Gap Vineyard, while the Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the Sonoma and Napa valleys. Together, they create a wine that's alert with Old World acidity as it unleashes a waterfall of violets, plum, and black cherry skin that cascades across the lush palate. Tannins are sheathed in dark chocolate and tempered by white pepper.
Wine Tasting Notes
Legend is opaque and dark-cherry red in appearance with bright and enticing aromas of leather, shaved chocolate, cassis, dried tobacco and black cherry. On the palate it is balanced with a beautiful dark fruit entry followed by a full mid-palate weighted with dark chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, and followed by finely grained, persistent tannins. This Cabernet Sauvignon blend has been complemented with the powerful and elegant Rhone varieties from our Biodynamic Annadel Estate Vineyard complement each other perfectly in this seamless and supple wine.
