Legacy 2009, 2010, & 2011 Comparison
Comparison notes to previous vintages to explain development of the Legacy over time. However current tasting notes are still an accurate description.
Brick red in colour, this wine has aged gracefully indeed. Over time sage and menthol aromas have advanced along with a representation of tobacco and tea leaf. The palate delivers similar characteristics as before but has developed more spicy notes of pepper & cinnamon with dark chocolate lending smokiness to the mid palate. It ends with a soft silky butterscotch finish.
A little more garnet in colour but the bouquet remains much the same. A beautiful forest floor undernote has developed representing a savoury scent of cedar and wet leaves. First sip on the palate brings a new discovery of strawberry and a hint of anise. Still full yet smooooth tannins.
