Winemaker Notes

Inspired by the richness and varietal diversity found in Sonoma, the concept behind Legend was to create a wine immediately accessible, delicious in its youth that would continue to age gracefully, delivering complexity and layers to an already seamless palate. The Rhône varietals boast a bouquet of wild herbs and rich forest berry fruit. Tannat provides an excellent backbone of tannins and superior focus while adding elegant floral aromatics. The fantastic varietals all blend masterfully with the sensation of ripe, opulent fruit creating a perfect harmony of elegance and richness culminating in a legendary wine experience.

TP 95
Tasting Panel
This proprietary red blend (25% Syrah, 25% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, 15% Zinfandel and 10% Tannat) is sourced [mostly from] the estate vineyard, situated between Mt. Hood and the Sonoma Mountains. The perfume is primarily floral: gardenia, red rose petals – with accents on red plum and an echo of black pepper. The palate is a silk road with gritty chocolate tannins. But the ruby slippers that carry you down the path bursts with red plum, dark chocolate cherries, exotic jasmine and grilled meat with soy sauce. The finish is pleasurable with a creamy cedar note.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This is a proprietary estate-grown blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Zinfandel, aged in French oak (45% new). Savory flavors of earth, black licorice, tobacco, meat and leather are lifted on the palate by fresh blueberry and blackberry tones, dusted in chocolate shavings.

Westwood Estate features wines sourced primarily from the Biodynamically certified Annadel Gap Vineyard in Sonoma Valley that serves as the heart of Westwood Estate. The vineyard has also achieved organic certification from Oregon based Stellar Certification Services. First planted in the northernmost part of Sonoma Valley in three stages between 2001 and 2009, the 22 planted acres feature carefully focused blocks of nine clones of Pinot Noir, four clones of Syrah, and micro-blocks of Counoise, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Tannat, Roussanne and Viognier. 

 Annadel Gap Vineyard allows Westwood to craft limited release artisan Pinot Noir and Rhône varietals, including Westwood Legend, a Rhône styled blend.

 The former dairy farm studded with Black Walnut groves features a gently sloping profile ranging from 410 to 530 feet, with four distinct soil zones of various loams resembling the famed Gold Ridge soils more common to Western Sonoma County. The vineyard is cooler than most in the northern reaches of Sonoma Valley, more closely resembling vineyards founded further west in the Petaluma Gap.

 The organic farming and Biodynamic™ practices at Annadel include the extensive use of beneficial insects, compost and cover crops and the application of materials at times that are directed by principles developed by Austrian scientist Rudolph Steiner early in the 20th century.

Sonoma County

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
