Winemaker Tasting Notes: This gorgeous wine greets the nose with fragrant aromas of dried Mission figs and hints of thyme. The flavors that follow include berry compote, red cherry, vanilla, light brown sugar and hints of cocoa. It’s a bright, juicy wine with many layers and soft supple tannins that lead to an elegant finish.
"Aged in French and American oak, this dynamic blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec offers up scents of huckleberry, dried herbs, and vanilla. An incredibly silky entry of ripe blueberry preserves captivates with a luxurious mouthfeel. The textural sensations continue with melting dark chocolate, graphite, and a coat of anise."- Tasting Panel.
"Sara Fowler blends this wine from five of the Peju family’s estate vineyards, based on 75 percent cabernet sauvignon with merlot, petit verdot and malbec. This is a gentle Napa Valley red, subtle in its scents of madrone and leather, brisk and bright in its cherry flavor. The tea-like tannins remain in the background, making this wine a complement to wood-grilled vegetables, from onions and peppers to eggplant and wild mushrooms."- Wine & Spirits.
"Laden with notes of caramel and raspberry compote, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Legacy Collection is made from a distinctively different fabric than the regular Peju Cabernet. A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec, it's brighter and more fun to drink, the red fruit and balanced acids balanced against darker notes of mocha and black cherries."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
"Aromas of plums, blackberries, blueberries, dried herbs, violet essence and sweet spices. Full-bodied with creamy tannins. Round and juicy with a spicy finish. Drink from 2022."- James Suckling.
Varietal: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec.
