Legacy Red Blend
Legacy is an amalgam, blended from the high elevation Stonestreet Estate, a gravel bench in Alexander Valley and an old riverbed on the northern border of Chalk Hill. The result is seamless—both engaging and serious, much like our winemaker Graham himself.
A Rich Medley of Soils
With more soil types than all of France combined, Sonoma County is one of the most geologically diverse growing regions in the world. Stonestreet Estate Vineyards has 25 different soil types, comprised primarily of volcanic material and uplifted riverbed from years of tectonic activity. This range contributes a great deal of complexity to the many mesoclimates found on the mountain.
Fog Plays a Defining Role
The fogline on Stonestreet Estate Vineyards plays a defining role, ending at approximately 1,800 feet. Everything above this point sees continuous sunshine while all the sites situated below are bathed in cool maritime air for several hours of each day. As a result, one finds immense flavor and structural differences from each climate locale.
The impact of elevation cannot be overstated in mountain vineyards. Closer proximity to the sun, temperature inversion and meager soils are but a few of the elements unique to high altitude sites. Elevations on Stonestreet Estate Vineyards range from 400 to 2,400 feet, conferring an impressive array of textural and structural elements to the wines.
A Respectful Cohabitation
Of the 5,100 acres of land on Stonestreet Estate Vineyards, only 900 are planted to grapes; the remaining acreage retains its natural biodiversity. Animal corridors allow deer, cougars and foxes to inhabit the vineyard and travel freely for water, food and shelter.
Stonestreet Wines at the Table
Mountain-grown wines are unique creatures in the world of wine; given the right treatment at the table, they’ll provide serious pleasure.
