Happy Wine Wednesday and I have been blessed to taste some great wines from Coyote Canyon Winery, located in south central Washington State. Here are my thoughts on what I discovered.
2013 Coyote Canyon Winery, Albarino: This Washington state expression of the wonderful, Portuguese and Spanish white grape offers an inviting, golden hue. With clean notes of pear, spice and faint sodium on the palate. This slightly viscus, refreshing wine is well calculated and extremely food friendly with its lovely acidity.
2013 Coyote Canyon Winery, “Life is a Rose”: This 100% semi sweet Barbera rose expresses a luscious note of perfectly ripened strawberries accompanied with a wisp of mild herbaceousness. A perfect picnic and Summertime wine that is destined to be a crowd favorite
2011 Coyote Canyon Winery, H/H Estates Buck Syrah Reserve: Elegant, yet dense; This thoughtfully structured Syrah gifts concentrated flavors of divine dark fruit, baking spice and a wisp of rosemary. Lamb is the ultimate pairing for this glorious red.
2011 Coyote Canyon Winery, Tres Cruces: This 91% Syrah with a splash of Grenache and Mourvedre is medium bodied with rich savory flavors of plum, blueberry, black licorice and toasted oak.
2012 Coyote Canyon Winery, Primitivo: With semi jammy dark fruit and wonderful notes of clove, tobacco and lime zest. Think Amador County with a little more fruit; A yummy, fullfilling Zin/Primitivo!
It was a truly an honor and wonderful ride tasting these extremely well balanced and tasty wines. Try them for yourself here: 357 Port Avenue, Studio A, Prosser,WA, 99350, or order online. Just click the pic below.
