K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The 2015 Calluna Vineyards Cuvée is an expression of our Chalk Hill appellation where great sunlight and a cool climate produces intense fruit in a wine with balancing acidity, round tannins and moderate alcohol levels. The blend expresses the power of Cabernet Sauvignon, elegance of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and a bit of showiness from Malbec and Petit Verdot."

    Dominated by Merlot, this California Bordeaux Blend has a lot to offer for its price range. The nose opens with lovely notes of plum, bramble fruit, violet, and carrot puree. The palate is soft and balanced with round tannin's, notes of baking spice, chocolate, and leather. If you're looking for a nice Bordeaux blend with a clear Californian voice this is an easy decision!

    David Jeffrey, winemaker for Calluna vineyards, is a master of his craft and his wines speak for themselves. I was fortunate enough to sit down with him at his amazing property perched on top of the chalk hill AVA and taste through his wines. Drawing from his experience working in Bordeaux, each varietal is methodically positioned in his vineyard, fermented separately and blended together later. The 2015 Cuvee CVC blend is comprised of 51% Merlot, 19% Cab Sav, 15% Cab Franc, 8% Malbec and 7% Petit Verdot. Having lower alcohol and soft tannins, this easy drinking cuvee can be a versatile companion at the dinner table. Lovely high tone chalk hill fruit shines from the glass with underlying notes of lavender, toasted coconut, and chalk. This truly is a “Bordeaux” style blend with balance and integrity.
