Anthony Gismondi "This is an excellent follow up to the 2013, and the best tannin-managed Legacy yet. It’s never a powerhouse, which is a plus in my estimation, but the challenge is to get more than just a hedonistic bent because its the layering and complexity that will take this to another level, and closer to its asking price. The blend is dominated by cabernet franc at 44 percent with 24/24/4/4 cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec, and petit verdot in turn. It’s at its savoury best in 2014 with an almost voluptuous entry of black fruit, dried leaves, licorice and sagebrush. A stylish red that just leaves me only wanting more in the finish. Drink now or hold three to five years." 91 Points
