Philippe Melka and Maayan Koschitzky deliver a wine worthy of the name “Legend.” California Cabernet does the heavy lifting here, but Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache lend the details that make it even more memorable, bringing Old World charm to the waterfall of chocolate currants, ripe plum and savory herbs. Jeb Dunnuck suggest you “Drink this pleasure-bent, incredibly satisfying red blend over the coming 7-8 years or more.”

Tasting Panel

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% Mourvèdre, and 10% Grenache; the Rhône 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
