94 points: “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.”

Tasting the 2013 Cabernet with a group at Tolaini, they agreed this was a LEGIT Cabernet Sauvignon, with a true sense of place and an Italian soul. In wanting to pursue the name LEGIT, only one person came to mind. A person who embodied stylish originality and eternal hipness, an artist referred to as the “Genius of Modern Music” – Thelonious Monk. The picture from his live album recorded in Milan in 1961 was perfect for Tolaini’s LEGIT Cabernet Sauvignon.
