    Glossary
Black fruit (mulberry, cassis and cherry) dominates the nose, which slowly opens to graphite, warm spice and cocoa nib. Mirroring the landscape surrounding the vineyard blocks, aromatic bay leaf and Madrone add further punctuation to the vivid fruit character in the wine. The palate is generous and supple on the entry, showing ripe dark fruit and an exuberant lift of blood orange and pomegranate — a nod to the freshness of the wine. The finish is laden with graphite, chalky tannins and the ever-persistent bay notes that ground this wine so firmly in the Alexander Valley.

The 2012 Proprietary Red Legacy, an 866-case blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc, may turn out to be the finest Legacy ever made. It exhibits terrific intensity along with beautiful notes of plums, blackberries, blueberries, licorice, tobacco leaf and damp earth. Full-bodied, softer, with more velvety tannins than the other Cabernets, it is a plush, drinkable red to consume over the next 15-20 years." — 95 Points Robert Parker

The 2012 Legacy Red Wine, Stonestreet's top wine, boasts gorgeous intensity and depth, not to mention considerable appeal. Cedar, smoke, tobacco and raspberry jam meld into brighter, floral notes that add lift and precision. Expressive ferrous notes add nuance on the close. The 2012 Legacy is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Stonestreet's Alexander Mountain Estate. Stylistically, it sits between the Rockfall and Christopher's Cabernets." — Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
