Winemaker's Notes

On the Alexander Valley mountain, the soil is thin, rocky and gravelly. This helps produce fruit that is complex, rich and concentrated. We complement this powerful fruit by using only small, thin-staved French oak barrels with which to age this wine. The resulting wine is supple, with flavors of cedar, black currant and dark chocolate. Look also for hints of smoky toastiness and concentrated black cherries.

This 2002 Legacy is the thirteenth release of our Bordeaux-style varietal blend. With this vintage, we selected five lots of wine from our estate vineyards in the eastern mountains and hills enclosing the southern end of the Alexander Valley.

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
