Dancing Coyote Red Blend El Dorado Tango 2006

External Review:

Dancing Coyote 04 Tango <h1 id="header">2004 Tango</h1>An interesting red blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec, this medium-bodied red wine will not disappoint.Tango is a red wine blend of three varietals: Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The resulting wine is smooth and supple, with flavors of ripe berries and black currant. Barrel aging adds notes of roasted coffee and earthy minerality.This red blend pairs well with subtle flavors of herb crusted rack of lamb. It highlights the earthy flavors found in most mushroom based dishes and compliments most aged cheeses. Great with pasta and other Italian dishes.The El Dorado appellation is known for producing top quality Bordeaux varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Special care is taken in all aspects of grape growing from deficit irrigation to precise pruning techniques, to handpicking at harvest.Grapes were hand harvested into small picking bins. They were then gently de-stemmed and fermented in open top tanks. The wine was made using a combination of hand punch-downs and occasional pump-overs. After a short extended maceration, the grapes were pressed and then racked to barrels for over 18 months of aging.
