Openly ripe and fruity, with complex aromas and flavors. The texture is smooth and polished, giving the core of currant, cherry, coffee, cedar and spice a gentle ride until the finish, where the tannins firm up. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Good deep red-ruby. Enticing aromas of raspberry, plum, nutty oak and game; offers a Burgundian tang. Lush, silky and layered; has the intensity and concentration to wear its acids and tannins gracefully. Finishes very long; the even tannins coat the entire mouth. An excellent '96.
The 1996 Legacy, a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, and 17% Cabernet Franc, exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color in addition to a toasty nose, chocolate, black currants, lead pencil, and smoke. Full-bodied, with high tannin, this pure, concentrated wine needs another 2-3 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020.
