2010 Calluna Estate

As the flagship of the winery, the Calluna Estate is inspired by the defining wines of Bordeaux’s Left Bank as it leads with Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot along with Cabernet Franc, and to a lesser extent Malbec and Petit Verdot, assist to round out the blend.

"The 2010 Calluna Estate delivers an excellent nose of cassis, black cherries, cigar smoke, a fine base of dark soil tones, espresso, a bit of lead pencil and a judicious framing of cedary new wood. I love the sense of inherent balance and restraint on this young, elegant and very complex wine, and it should be a cellar treasure in the fullness of time. This is a very high class bottle of Bordeaux-inspired Sonoma red wine that will need at least another decade to really start to come into its own, but which should firmly cement the reputation of Calluna Estate as one of the brightest new producers in the firmament of California wine. Fine, fine juice!"
