Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
"The 2009 Legacy Red Wine is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5.5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, 2.8% Petit Verdot and 2.7% Merlot fashioned by Stonestreet winemaker Graham Weerts. Dark red berries, flowers, mint, mocha and espresso are woven together beautifully in this impeccable, polished wine. The fruit profile tends towards the redder end of the spectrum, which differentiates Legacy from the wines Weerts makes under the Stonestreet label. A sumptuous, elegant finish rounds things out in style."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Dark red. Serious, brooding cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, licorice, graphite and herbs. Sweet and seamless but tight in the mouth, less pliant today than the Christopher's owing to the wine's firm spine of tannins and acids. Blackberry and cassis flavors are given punch by some petit verdot and complicated by coffee, mocha and gravelly mineral notes. This fine-grained, suave wine has the backbone to age, but I'd forget about it for at least a few years."
