94 Points Wine Spectator (#26 Wine of 2019): "This is broad and incisive, delivering black currant, plum, leather, earth and wild herb flavors. Dense and beefy, yet with ample fruit for balance, driven by vibrant acidity. This is starting to mellow but still has years of life ahead. Drink now through 2036." LEGIT is wine of power and finesse, an organically farmed Cabernet Sauvignon made from hand-picked grapes from prized San Giovanni Vineyard in the heart of Castelnuovo Berardenga. Here the gentle sloping Tuscan vineyard and its gnarled vines mimic the angular melodies and dissonant twists of Monk's great masterpieces. "A wine born of soul and depth", a harmonius and unlikely marriage of American Jazz and Italian tradition that is as perfectly irreverent, as stylishly 'LEGIT' as the Artist who inspired it. The wine has a deep ruby red color. The nose displays hints of green pepper, licorice and graphite melted with oak vanilla flavors. Full bodied with a ripe fruit palate, LEGIT has the potential to age for a long period of time, which is typical of the Cabernet Sauvignon produced in the Castelnuovo Berardenga Area."

Good, but the 2013 is really too young to drink on 2020.
