|Region||California, Sonoma County, Chalk Hill|
The 2017 Calluna Vineyards Cuvée is meant to be 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.
From the Chalk Hill AVA in Sonoma and a Bordeaux blend (they don't specify the varieties) aged 21 months in 20% new French oak, the 2017 Calluna Vineyards Cuvee sports a dense purple color as well as attractive notes of black fruits, chocolate, scorched earth, and charcoal. It's ripe, medium to full-bodied, has wonderful fruit, and is ideal for drinking over the coming 5-7 years.
