A result like this?

sysuse auto,clear
local i = 1
foreach var of varlist mpg head turn gear  {
	local l`var' : var label `var'
	local a " `a' `i' `"`l`var''"' "
	local ++i
collapse mpg head turn gear,  by(fore)
stack mpg head turn gear, into(a) clear
label def _stack `a'
label val _stack _stack
bys _s: gen origin = _n -1
reshape wide a, i(_s) j(origin)
label var a0 "Domestic"
label var a1 "Foreign"
graph dot (asis) a*,  over(_s)
