Coyote Canyon Winery 2018 Coyote Canyon Vineyard Tempranillo, Horse Heaven Hills $32

By on January 12, 2022

For the second time in three years, Justin Michaud turned Mike Andrews’s Tempranillo grapes into a Platinum winner. This time, however, it earned a Double Platinum and ranked as the highest-scoring Temp of the tasting. Michaud used a stream of Graciano (5%) to bring everything together in a concentrated fashion — dark plum, black cherry, graphite and steak juice — for a bold yet polished example of Washington Tempranillo. Enjoy with ham or cured meat. Award: Wine Press Northwest peer-judging (Outstanding!).

Rating: Double Platinum, 98 points

Production: 66 cases

Alcohol: 14.9%
