2012 Graciano Reserve



Tasting Notes

Our first Artist Series wine kicks off our Graciano varietal. Spicy currents and mocha mixed with rich oak aromas introduce a savory flavor with mouth watering taste. Aged in French oak barrels for 22 months, the wine showcases the depth and complexity of the Coyote Canyon Vineyard. Limited production. Pairs well with grilled red meats. We are pleased to share our interpretation of the Graciano grape from the Coyote Canyon Vineyard. Enjoy!

Vineyard Notes

  • Vineyard Source: Coyote Canyon Vineyard
  • AVA: Horse Heaven Hills
  • Winemaker: Justin Michaud

The Horse Heaven Hills AVA was right at its long term average for GDD which was nice after a couple of cooler vintages in 2010 and 2011. With consistent temperatures and a steady source of irrigation grapes were ripened on time and developed full flavors.
