Wine Review: This opaque and onyx colored Cab based blend from Stonestreet is pretty impressive. It opens with a wonderfully inviting cassis bouquet with hints of cedar and blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, fruit forward and very flavorful. Those flavors are a delicious black cherry and blueberry blend with nicely integrated oak. I also detected a touch of red beet and dried cranberry. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins stick around for quite a while after the wine in gone. This wine would be perfect with a cowboy ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: In the 2007 Legacy, licorice, crushed rock and juniper are immediately present in the nose. Sandalwood and fresh cigar box provide an exotic counterpoint to the savory notes, along with black currant and cherry. Seamless and complete, Legacy is a testament to the art of blending from benchland, mid-mountain and high elevation blocks—the latter of which adds a formidable tannin and mineral element to the wine’s texture and aromatic intrigue.

Organic status: not organic
