This was our first experience with Legacy, and what an introduction! This wine is superlative. Satin smooth, extraordinarily rich yet perfectly balanced, this is what California Cabernet is all about. There is not a harsh note to be found in the seamless cascades of rich, smoky dark currant flavors or the complex melange of dark fruit, spice, and sweet oak aromas. We are seriously indebted to our friends the Stepners for sharing this exceptional wine with us. - WB exec team 2006-07-09
