Tasting Notes: “… offers up a complex and classy bouquet of cassis, black cherries, tobacco leaf, a touch of menthol, dark soil tones and a judicious framing of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very suave on the attack, with a fine core, moderate tannins and fine length and grip on the well-balanced finish.” - John Gilman; View from the Cellar
Galaxy Notes: We make wine exclusively from the five red Bordeaux varietals which were planted on these hillsides beginning in 2004. The Calluna Vineyards Cuvée is an expression of this land. It is a blend that expresses the power of Cabernet Sauvignon, elegance of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and a bit of showiness from Malbec and Petit Verdot. 36% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot, 10% Malbec
