This 2003 Legacy is the fourteenth release of our Bordeaux-style varietal blend. With this vintage, we selected five lots of wine from our estate vineyards in the eastern mountains and hills enclosing the southern end of the Alexander Valley. Elevation holds the key to this wine's combination of boldness and elegance: more than 80% of the grapes used to make this wine were grown at elevations of at least 2,000 feet. Most of the Cabernet Sauvignon was chosen from selected blocks planted at 2,400 feet on Alexander Mountain Estate.

Wine AdvocateLegacy used to be Stonestreet's flagship wine, but it is now marketed separately. The 2003 Legacy's dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by a bouquet of graphite, black fruits, earth, and charcoal. This attractive, medium-bodied blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot will benefit from another 1-2 years of bottle age given its tannic structure. It will age for 12-15 years. 88+
