​This wine took on its characteristic deep dark purple color from the time it was crushed. It was made to specifically highlight the fascinating sensation of the complex layers of astringency particular to the tannins of Malbec. The fruit grown at Two Coyote Vineyard is irrepressible, though. The plum, blueberry and raw cacao aromas help identify the distinct qualities of Malbec from Washington State

​​In 2009 I chose to use fruit entirely from Two Coyote vineyard in Zillah, located in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA. It was picked at 24.8 brix and spent 22 months in oak, about 20% new American barrels. There was 5% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot added as well. 160 cases were made at 14.2% alcohol
