2018 WESTWOOD LEGEND PROPRIETARY RED
Winemaker Philippe Melka — STUNNING 97 POINTS! In its third Vintage, this is the Highest Rated so far of Westwood Legend! Their star winemaker is Philippe Melka, named by the Wine Advocate as “one of the Top 10 Winemakers in the World” …
From Tasting Panel MAGAZINE,
“In its third vintage, this superbly expressive red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Mourvedre emits scents of jasmine, plum blossoms and cafe mocha. Winemakers Philippe Melka and Maayan Koschitzky fermented the wine in closed-top stainless steel tanks as well as a French oak upright tank. Aged in 30% new French oak for 20 months. The palate mirrors the nose, adding a graceful array of floral notes with more robust flavors ascending to heavenly levels of black raspberry, coffee, and dots of white pepper that cause the mouth to salivate.” TASTING PANEL 97 POINTS
From Wine Enthusiast,
“This combines 45% Syrah, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Mourvèdre, 6% Cabernet Franc and handfuls of Tannat and Petit Verdot. It shows bursts of lavender, game and violet, with traces of white pepper. Altogether the wine is velvety, smooth, softly tannic and robust.” WINE ENTHUSIAST 94 POINTS
