Ruby colored liquid in my glass. Hints of cherry pie on the nose. Flavors of tart cherries, red plums and baking spices. Beautiful acidity. A very balanced wine. This is my last regular bottle of CP wine. I do have a VS Pinot which I will sit on for a while. Glad other wineries are making really good wines from the Clos Pepe vineyard.

Red fruit, olives and some earthiness on the nose. Tastes of bright fruit like tart cherries, boysenberry, and plums accented by a lingering hint of blackberries on the finish. Silky smooth and elegant. A beautiful Ste. Rita Hills Pinot Noir.

This is the signature bottling. Selected on being the lightest Burgundian example of the estate. Neutral oak.

More brooding fruit and bracing acidity.

2014 Dark Side. Slightly peppery nose. Earthy, spicy, full-bodied fruit. Signature Clos Pepe.

The nose on this wine is ridiculous. Raspberries and hibiscus up front with a slight warm, woody background. The wine is a light ruby, bright and clean. We enjoyed this with some porch sun and black truffle potato chips. In a few years, it will be a great French-inspired dinner wine.
