The 2014 Red Wine exhibits aromas of cassis, violet, fennel and mocha flood from the glass alongside a faint hint of bay leaf—a nod to the wine’s mountain provenance. Black fruit, graphite and forest botanicals cascade through a powerful textural presence held aloft by chewy tannins. Extraordinarily layered and complex, the 2014 Legacy will reward patience and will age easily for two decades.

Stonestreet Estate Vineyards is the story of a family’s vision to defy the limits of California winegrowing. Jess Stonestreet Jackson and Barbara Banke established the estate in 1995, and their son Christopher Jackson and his wife Ariel continue the legacy — and the middle name “Stonestreet” has now been passed from father to son for three generations. Stonestreet is one of the most expansive and multi-faceted mountain vineyards in the world and produces a distinctive collection of single vineyard wines — powerful Cabernet Sauvignon, soulful Chardonnay and electric Sauvignon Blanc.

Wine Advocate – 93 Points

he 2014 Legacy Proprietary Red is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot aged 26 months in 55% new French oak. This is a wine with notes of lead pencil shavings, crushed rock, fresh, unsmoked cigar tobacco as well as blackcurrants and black cherries. Deep, rich, and medium to full-bodied, with finely tuned tannins, it should drink beautifully for 15-20 or more years. Oct/2016 —Robert M. Parker, Jr
