Tasting Note: Kellogg Cuvée demonstrates vast complexity. Rich berry notes move into a smoky blend of spice and sweet floral aromas that are beautifully shrouded in a well-knit veil of tannins. All of the different varietals add dimension and style to a wine that reflects 75 years of history and devotion to a community, and serves as a tribute to those who have helped bring Cal Poly Pomona to the forefront of education.
