Hello & Happy New Year...
Your Friends at Wild Coyote Winery & Manucci Spirits

As we look back over a memorable 2016, we would like to thank our valued Coyote Pack Members & friends for your continued loyalty and patronage. We are looking forward to a very exciting 2017 with new additions & releases to our Wild Coyote line up! This by the way, is our new quarterly newsflash  communication, hope you'll like it...

Distillery Grand Opening

Manucci Spirits is the latest addition to Wild Coyote Winery, which began production in 2016, mainly focused on 100% estate grapes (seven varietals) to produce the base Brandy. Also, we are now part of a gang-of-9 distillers in SLO county AKA "Paso Robles Distillery Trail". We have several products currently available for tasting & purchase; Grappa, oak barrel aged Grappa (Cognac style), Limoncello, several varieties of Brandy infusions; Pomegranate, Anise, Espresso Coffee Beans, Habanero & Garlic.

Special Announcement
We are thrilled to be releasing our first Cabernet Sauvignon in March 2017. This is a very limited production (less than 200 cases). Packaged in our beautifully shaped Italian Pillar bottle, (welcome back from 2005) priced at $65. This item will not be in the Club shipment yet, but members will have the first opportunity at placing advance orders with their discount. 

We have all been patiently awaiting, as this Goddess has been maturing in the languid embrace of the oak barrel it has called home for the past eighteen months. We love the balance, velvet mouth feel, satin finish and deep flavors of  a solidly constructed Cabernet. This vivacious dazzler has the heart of a tiger and the soul of a gentle lover. Tranquil and basking in her own intoxicating peaceful existence, only to draw you into her lair and steal your heart. We recommend you lay down this 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon for at least four years to allow it to mature and become the Super Model she most certainly is destined to be...    Click here to Place an Order                                                                                                                                               By: Dianne Jackson,  Tasting Room Manager
New Vintage Release
We are getting ready to bottle our 2015 vintage on March 2 & 3. Judging from our tasting panel, everyone agreed that we are in for another amazing vintage. This drought has made our vines work harder than ever to produce stellar fruit, which is apparent in this vintage. The yields were lower but the grapes, spectacular! Our two different Club programs will receive one of the following two selections. If you haven't tried our globals yet, we strongly urge you to do so, they are limited & sell out very fast. As our Winemaker (Gianni) says "to truly appreciate or judge our handcrafted work, one needs to first embrace all that we have to offer..."
Classic: Zinfandel, Syrah, Merlot*, House-Of-Reds Blend
       Blend is now: Syrah, Zin & Mourvedre
       * Since Merlot was grafted to Cab (we'll ship 2013/2014 library Merlot)
Global: Mourvedre, Malbec, Tempranillo, Tannat
