Tasting Notes
"Composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, the deep purple-black colored 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Hertelendy Legend comes barreling out of the glass with profound scents of blackcurrant cordial, blackberry pie and blueberry compote with touches of mocha, licorice, black truffles and cedar chest. The medium to full-bodied palate has fantastically intense black and blue fruit layers, supported by a firm frame of fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note." — Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 98 Points
"The flagship from this address, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Legend (95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) sports a dense purple hue to go with a gorgeous bouquet of pure crème de cassis, blueberries, spicy oak, new leather, camphor, and dried tobacco. Showing the vintage’s elegant, pure, focused style, it has solid concentration, beautiful overall balance, building tannins, and a great, great finish. Offering both elegance and power, it has an almost Bordeaux-like vibe, and while approachable today, it’s going to benefit from 4-6 years of bottle age and keep for 30 years or more. This is a beautiful, classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon." — Jeb Dunnuck, 98 Points
"The 2018 'Legend' Cabernet Sauvignon is an truly exceptional wine from Hertelendy. It immediately knocks your socks off with its seductive aromatics of ripe boysenberries, blueberries and dark currants which are followed by sage, exotic spices, dark chocolate, fresh florals, fresh mint and hints of earthy nuances all exploding from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied, yet beautifully balanced by its notable acidity which provides wonderful lift and a wonderful sense of freshness. This continues to impress with its remarkable tannin structure, which results in a well-defined mouthfeel that leads into a long finish that lingers with delicious flavors of boysenberries, dark currants and exotic spices. This is a exceptional wine from Ralph Hertelendy that will only become more compelling as it evolves over time." -International Wine Report, 98 Points
