Wakefield, The Legacy Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

RRP £550

Deviating from the single varietal template, The Legacy is a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc.  Its deep reserves of succulent cassis have a distinct red fruit accent and, with 36 months in stellar French oak, the fruit is buffed to a sheen. Signature bay leaf and liquorice permeate, together with exotic black tea, bitter chocolate, coffee grounds and cedar.  Exceptionally fine tannins and unerring drive impart impressive line and length.
