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.
