The 2020 CDP has aromas of raspberry, ripe plum, and a touch of Herbes de Provence.
The entry is bright and fresh, driven by red and blue fruits. The midpalate is rich and layered with flavors of bing cherry, olallieberry, and pomegranate. The wine finishes with a soft tannin structure, making it an easy-drinking, great food pairing wine.

Pair with pork chops, lamb, sausage, meat-based pastas, and good company!
