The outstanding 1997 Legacy, a proprietary blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, and 17% Cabernet Franc, possesses abundant jammy black currant/cherry fruit intermixed with lead pencil, toasty oak, and vanilla. Full-bodied and pure, with moderate tannin, this large-scaled effort (14.2% alcohol) can be drunk early, but promises to evolve for at least two decades.
Medium ruby. Subtly complex nose melds cherry, bitter chocolate, minerals, tobacco and smoky oak, along with an enticing floral note. A step up in density: silky, sweet and suave, with nicely integrated acidity. Laid-back and rather stylish, but with a serious structure for aging. Finishes with subtle length and sweet, spreading tannins. 91(+?) points.
