The 2015 Cuvée CVC from David Jeffrey is composed this year of a blend of fifty-one percent merlot, nineteen percent cabernet sauvignon, fifteen percent cabernet franc and eight percent malbec and seven percent petit verdot. The wine tips the scales at a quite civilized octane level of 13.8 percent and offers up a nascently complex nose of black cherries, dark berries, a bit of menthol, cigar wrapper, dark soil tones, cigar smoke and cedary new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and beautifully balanced, with a lovely core, superb transparency, suave, ripe tannins and excellent length and grip on the vibrant and still youthful finish. This is not a big wine, but it is loaded with personality and has excellent breed and blossoming complexity; it will be a stellar bottle in the fullness of time, but deserves some time in the cellar to soften up properly. A stellar bottle! 93+
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the 2015 Calluna Vineyards Cuvée is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and offers notes of warm plums, mulberries and wild blueberries with wafts of underbrush, Provence herbs and rose hip tea. Medium-bodied, the palate has an understated, savory character, with a firm backbone of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing with very good persistence. (LPB)
This is among the finest Bordeaux blends at its price point, from estate-grown fruit, and consisting of a majority Merlot. A dusty, oaky nose gives way to soft fleshy black fruit, cedar and black pepper, offering length and breadth with ease. *Editor's Choice* (VB)
