Production 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, cinnamon sticks, and potpourri, this delicious wine has an elegant palate that leads to a long smooth finish.

This versatile wine pairs with hearty salads, duck, quail, and pork dishes.

Blend: 62% Grenache, 17% Mourvedre, 11% Syrah, 10% Tannat
