Wow. Big. Powerful. Complex. This is a wine that jumps out of the glass. The color is a deep dark red. The aromas are of oak, chocolate, and earth. At first the wine seems to show lots of fruit but is almost taken over by the oak and earth notes. This wine is about the finish, it has lots of tannin and grit and keeps going and going.

Well I have to give Marti credit for making us bottle this wine. We were tasting components for some of our other blends and Marti said not only did she love Petite Verdot but she knew we needed to bottle some of this wine on its own. I wasn't sure we had enough to bottle it and use it in the blends I wanted but knew there had to be a way. I am a fan of Petite Verdot and agreed that this was some stunning wine so I had to figure out how to save a little for this special project. I feel like all the wine we make at Coyote is special and love showcasing the different varietals so this was really just another chance to do just that. I hope that you enjoy the wine, the art and the story.
