Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 15.6%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Dark fruited, aromatically intense and laced with black fruit and spice, the 2009 Legacy is a gorgeous reflection of the vintage. Wild blueberry, ripe cherry, hazelnut, and violet run the length of the wine's aromas and flavors with blackberry and vanilla bean rounding out the richly textured palate. Seamless and complete, Legacy is a reflection of 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.

Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

"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."
94 Points

"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."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
