Coyote Creek Zinfandel
Coyote Creek wines are handcrafted using traditional winemaking techniques that blend flavors from distinct vineyards throughout California. Each glass invites the palate on a sensory journey of discovery through layers of bold and ripe flavors reflecting the diverse nature of California’s premier wine regions.
From across the nuanced terroir and microclimates of California, Coyote Creek sought to find the best lots of Zinfandel that represented a range of styles and flavors. This is how their winemaking team is able to craft such a harmonious wine. Across California, vintner’s rejoiced at the quality of the 2016 wines. El Niño brought rain to the state, especially needed after several years of drought. However, it was still a hot year, with the budburst and harvest beginning earlier than usual.
Coyote Creek Zinfandel has a complex bouquet of maraschino cherry, sultana, toast, and dried lavender. A multilayered palate features red cherry, blueberry, and fig is complemented by black pepper and umami. This wine pairs well with beef and other hearty meat dishes (think a charbroiled New York steak, a juicy burger or kabobs).
