Wine Press Northwest Awards ~ Best of 2016

Every year we wait with baited breathe for the results of this judging which has been conducted annually for the last 17 years.  We are very please with this year's results receiving Double Platinum for our 2013 Tres Cruses and two Platinum awards for our 2015 Roussanne and 2012 Michael Andrews Red.  We were also awarded 12 Double Gold medals and recognized on the King of the Plantinum for receiving at least 10 Platinum awards over the last 17 years. 

DOUBLE PLATINUM
Coyote Canyon Winery 2013 Tres Cruces Horse Heaven Hills
•  $25
For several years running, Coyote Canyon Winery, based in the Prosser, Wash., Wine Village has produced this superb blend that’s focused on Syrah from Mike Andrews’s vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills. Once again, the 2013 is dark, brooding, earthy and inky, with a full mouth feel that is gorgeous. The wine manages perfectly the tension between blue and even darker fruit while showing off a hint of vanilla and coconut from spot-on oak. (225 cases, 14.7% alc.) Awards: Wine Press Northwest affordable reds judging (Outstanding!), San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition (gold), Seattle Wine Awards (double gold), Denver Wine Competition (gold).

PLATINUM
Coyote Canyon Winery 2015 Coyote Canyon Vineyard Roussanne, Horse Heaven Hills •  $22
Owner/grower Mike Andrews and winemaker Justin Michaud have been releasing remarkable Roussanne for several years, and this may be its best effort yet. It shows off apple, pineapple aromas, then subtly tropical, pineapple and cidery flavors. Its kiss of 0.9% residual sugar is balanced by some of that traditional HHH minerality. (100 cases, 14.1% alc.) Award: Denver Wine Competition (gold).

PLATINUM
Coyote Canyon Winery 2012 H/H Estates Coyote Canyon Vineyard Michael Andrews Reserve Red, Horse Heaven Hills • 
$38
This comes from a classic vintage and showcases winemaker Justin Michaud’s first autumn of work for Mike Andrews, who owns both Coyote Canyon Vineyard and its winery. It’s a gorgeous blend of Spanish grapes Tempranillo (67%) and Graciano (33%), offering sweet fruit aromas and flavors, backed by balance and the characteristic HHH minerality. Its brilliant acidity is the finishing touch. (287 cases, 14.9% alc.) Award: Tri-Cities Wine Festival (gold).
