From Pinot Noir grape, salmon color with Berry aromas and floral scents. On the palate strawberries and cherries, somewhat acidic. The finish is non-eventful with a slight mineral character and a dry short ending. Pass. Tasting Sample. Tried twice.

Drank 7/11/19. Tasting event. Tasting pour.

Very floral, with white peach, pear, and some river rock. Lighter flavors of peach, and mineral, with a well balanced acidity. Medium finish. A nice wine for food pairing.

4/21/7/4/3 + 50 =89 pts.

Surprisingly light. It starts with a floral overlay - it's there then dissipates into a light finish and then gone. Any easy drink

I love this wine, and have ever since my first bottle swig on a kayak floating in a high mountain lake with great company. The official wine of the #CPFL delivers again with chalky minerality and brilliant acidity balanced by sweet citrus flavors. QPR King!

The official wine of the CPFL has produced the best vintage yet. With scorching acidity, babbling brook pebbles, and citrus this wine is a #qprsuperstar

Bright citrus with sharp acidity with a bit of stone fruit finish. Paired well with scallops and grits.
