Community Tasting Notes 3

    October 1, 2019 - Nose of fragrant dark fruit, violets, a hint of ash. Dense dark fruit on the palate with strong gritty tannins, muscular toned presence, long sinewy tannic finish with a winding sheet of sweet acid. Big and powerful in a fresh floral gown and without a hint of flab. Excellent with tarragon braised chicken.

    March 22, 2019 - The greatest Calluna I have had. Aromas of tea leaf, and some cranberry. On the palette it is immediate blackberry with tobacco leaf and slight cranberry. On the finish it is all "Cedar" wood and a small amount of tight tannic driven fruit which is totally restrained.

    This is built to age and improve. I commend David and his team as this is totally better than all recent vintages.

    June 4, 2018 - Napa Valley & Chalk Hill AVA winery visits - 5/30 & 5/31, 2018: Aromas of pressed flowers, cassis, cherry and black tea. Elegant and dense palate of melted stone, cedar, cassis and other red and black fruit, and spices. Big fine tannins, full depth thoughout, finishing with good length.
