Tasting Notes

CDP (Côtes de Paso) is our Rhône-style blend that is a combination of four varietals from our estate vineyard. Grenache provides a bright fruit-forward entry, Mourvèdre adds spice notes, while Syrah brings some weight to the mid-palate, and Tannat ties everything together with color, tannin and acidity. Loaded with aromas of dried strawberry and rose petals, with a hint of garrigue, this delicious wine has an elegant palate that leads to a long smooth finish.
