Tasting Notes
"The 2019 Legend Cabernet Sauvignon is deep purple-black in color. Creme de cassis, blueberry compote, and black cherries jump from the glass, with suggestions of candied violets, espresso, wild sage, and spice cake in the undercurrent. The full-bodied palate delivers fantastic tension, with beautifully ripe, grainy tannins and loads of savory layers, finishing long and spicy." — The Wine Independent, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW, 98 Points
"The 2019 Hertelendy 'Legend' is a majestic showing in this vintage. This stunning wine opens to an expressive aromatic profile with fresh dark fruits, violets, tobacco, loam and herb nuances that all come together and soar from the glass. The palate offers a gorgeous full body that is impeccably structured with beautifully polished tannins that frame the layers of juicy dark fruits. This goes on to display outstanding overall balance and wonderful purity, as it remains fresh and light on its feet all the way through the long finish. The 2019 is a simply fantastic wine that will surely evolve beautifully over the next two decades." — International Wine Report, 98 Points
"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Hertelendy Legend is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it comes galloping out of the glass with bold notes of blackcurrant jelly, blackberry preserves and stewed plums, plus hints of licorice, chocolate box and charcuterie. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has beautiful poise with fine-grained tannins and fantastic freshness to support the taut, muscular black berry flavors, finishing long." — Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 97+ Points
Vineyard Notes
"The flagship from this estate, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Hertelendy Legend is based on 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, and the rest Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, aged 23 months in French and Hungarian oak. Sporting a deep purple hue as well a darker currant and black cherry fruit profile, it has lots of classic tobacco and leafy herb notes, some spicy oak, full-bodied richness, terrific overall balance, and a great, great finish. This beautiful, elegant, layered wine can be drunk with incredible pleasure today or cellared for 15-20 years. 90 cases." — Jeb Dunnuck, 97+ Points
