This superbly expressive red blend 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 Red Blend begins with alluring aromatics of ripe black currants and blackberries which are beautifully woven together with exotic spices, chocolate shavings, forest floor, tobacco, and mineral accents that all come together and soar from the glass. On the palate this is every bit as stunning, full-bodied, intense and concentrated, yet displaying remarkable poise and balance. It continues to impress with its wonderful purity, acidity, and depth, as layers of ripe dark fruits, dark cherry, exotic spices and herbal flavors all continue to build and resonate through the long, supple finish. An impressive and flat-out delicious right now, yet should also have an extremely bright future ahead.

Shows bursts of lavender, game and violet, with traces of white pepper. Altogether the wine is velvety, smooth, softly tannic and robust.
