Layers of fruit, vanilla and spice, with luscious textures. A big, bold and magnificent wine. Aromas of blackcurrant, rich ripe blackberries, with layers of decadent vanilla. The palate is silky with rich, sweet black fruits, countered with hints of black olive, Christmas cake and chocolate. Some more dusty notes and freshly cut young wood, together with grippy tannins help to add complexity and balance to this succulent wine.

Legacy is led by Cabernet Sauvignon which makes up 84% of the blend and is from both hillside and mountain vineyards in the Alexander Valley. The mountain vineyards reach up to 2,400 feet in elevation and are planted on our Alexander Mountain Estate. Higher altitude creates its own climate which is different from the vineyards planted on the valley floor. Even on the warmest summer days, the cooling influence of the Pacific Ocean twenty miles away can be felt. Soils, too, are significantly different. On the mountain, the soil is thin, rocky and gravelly. This helps produce fruit that is complex, rich and concentrated. The blend is further enhanced by the contributions of Cabernet Franc (5.5%), Malbec (5%), Merlot (2.8%) and Petit Verdot (2.7%) fruit sourced from Legacy vineyards in the Alexander Valley. The powerful fruit is complimented by using only small, thin-staved French oak barrels to age this wine. The resulting wine is supple and leads with notes of graphite and black currant. Look also for hints of smoky toastiness and concentrated black cherries.

To be paired with dark meats in rich reduced sauces, such beef bourguignon, lovingly prepared steak and kidney pie, roast prime rib of beef or lamb shank.
