Wine Of The Week: Légende Bordeaux Rouge 2014

Our favorite wine this week is the Légende Bordeaux Rouge 2014.  The unusually warm autumn of 2014, after a gloomy summer, gave the vines optimal ripening conditions resulting in a great vintage year.

This is a 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 40% Merlot blend.  The dark fruit flavors are as strong as the ruby color is rich and the wine is very well balanced after 60% of the blend has aged in barrels.  The finish is slightly spicy. 

This is a great sip on it's own, as we've been enjoying it, or paired with meals and just seems right for the fall weather.  The suggested retail price is $17.99.

This wine was part of a sample provided to TBF by Pasternak Wines without any consideration for coverage or review by us.
