Our estate vineyard in the Dundee Hills is comprised of 13 different blocks planted across 16 acres. The Legacy, our most precious wine, is an exclusive selection of own-rooted Pinot noir sourced from vines planted between 1974 and 1976.
Leading with heady aromatics of ripe strawberry, currant and orange peel, the palate on the 2014 Legacy begins brightly with notes of cranberry and dusty rose. The mid-palate transitions into darker characters of dried thyme, dried mushrooms, and lavender, complemented by blackberry and cherry leading to a soft, delicate finish.
