Dancing Coyote Albariño Clarksburg 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is very fresh on the nose with minerally flecked notes of almost minty crabapple and bitter orange. On the palate this is impressively elegant with rich, sweet fruit but wonderfully-balanced acids that give this a rather light footprint. It’s got mineral cut on the palate and a hint of almost quartzy minerality that lead to the green tea laced backend with hints of quince and that hint of bitter orange again. The finish is moderately long, brisk and refreshing though the wine comes off as a bit stern. Not a cocktail wine, but one that would shine with shellfish, or even better, chicken roasted with green olives and bitter orange juice! 89pts

Dancing Coyote is a family run, owned and operated vineyard located in a beautiful stretch of land in California’s Clarksburg appellation. We’ve been farming in the Delta region along the Sacramento River for five generations. These days we keep busy nurturing over 600 acres of exquisite wine grapes in the ideal climate and soil of the Sacramento Valley. Our family’s devotion to producing wines of exceptional quality and character is unwavering. So, it’s no surprise we are involved in the winemaking process every step of the way. From the growing and harvesting of our grapes at the peak of their flavor, to crushing, aging and handcrafting the final product. In short, winemaking is our family’s greatest passion, so it goes without saying that we’re in it for the long haul. Read less

Tropical fruit nose, mostly papaya. Flavors are warm and mellow, with a bit of citrus zest on the finish.
