Nose

Powerful and ripe, the nose of “The Coyote” jumps off the glass with intense aromas of dark berries, crème de cassis, plums and tobacco leaf.

Palate

The entrance can feel like a slap in the face, leading to an awakening of the senses. The mid-palate continues to demand your attention with well-sculpted and fine-grained flavors of Acai, dried blackberries, licorice, chipotle smoked bacon and forest floor. The finish is silky smooth but super-long and massively tannic, confirming that this wine has indeed a very long life ahead of it.

Growing Conditions

A winemaker’s dream vintage. Consistent growing conditions and cooler temperatures allowed the grapes to slowly mature in 2018. Harvest across Napa Valley was generous with above average yields & high-quality fruit. In Howell Mountain, this immensely successful harvest gifted us the best Cabernet Sauvignon grapes we could wish for.
