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.
This wine is marked by a bouquet of dried herbs and spices: clove, rosemary, and thyme jump out, followed by blackberry and currant. Wet tobacco and bramble dominate the front palate with savory notes of mushroom and forest floor following. The elegant and soft entry builds to an extraordinarily long finish.
