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."

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