This wine is super refined and elegant. The amount of acid was noticeable at this point - and the tannins are strong even after a four plus hour decant. This is one for the long haul. It was cool to taste this side by side with the ‘12 vintage as well as next to the ‘12 regular Estate. All so different yet all so good. Such wonderful wines it’s sad they’re no longer making them.

Coyote Ridge Red Blend 2013

I don’t usually rate wines this high but this wine was over the top. Great blue and black fruit, dark chocolate, cassis with acid and tannins in perfect harmony. Really nice red belly wash. — 6 years ago
