Calluna Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

As the flagship of the winery, Calluna Estate is selected from the best lots of our hillside vineyards in the Chalk Hill AVA in the heart of Sonoma County. Our vineyards rest at an ideal elevation in this moderate growing area – allowing full ripening with less extremes of frost and heat. Our goal is to deliver both the classic balance of Old World wines and the richness inherent in our Sonoma terroir.

Each of the 12 blocks are fermented separately and then evaluated with blending trials after their first 5 months in barrel.

The 2017 is one of our bigger, riper vintages, but this wine retains its elegance and will age well. Enjoyable now, particularly at the table, but laying some down will repay one’s patience for sure.

2012 Calluna Estate

2012 Calluna Estate

The 2012 vintage gave us a bounty of fine components to choose from for our Estate Red. We selected the final blend 8 months after harvest and its additional year+ of barrel aging allowed those components to marry into a wine of harmony and power.

“An elegant and beautiful wine with a deep ruby/purple color, Bordeaux-like minerality, crème de cassis, licorice, earth and spice. This is a beauty that should drink well for 15-20 years. Impressive.”

“The bouquet is simply stunning… On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and supremely elegant, with a great core of sweet fruit, strikingly soil-driven and perfectly balanced, with firm, ripe and integrated tannins, laser-like focus and a very, very long, refined and complex finish. Sheer brilliance!”

2008 Calluna Estate

2008 Calluna Estate

The Calluna Estate, our reserve wine, is my highest aspiration in winemaking – a Bordeaux blend of selected barrels from our estate. My goal is to have this wine stand with the best wines of Bordeaux and California. Intensity with balance, significant but well-integrated oak (60% new), true to its terroir.
