Beautiful evening at Tapteil Vineyards. Over 60 people came to enjoy the food, wines, music and ambiance. Anton Sinkov played his classical guitar for us. His # is 551-9882 if you'd like to hire him.
Women Who Wine released their new Rojo Hermoso Blend (70% Graciano% 25%Tempranillo with a 5% splash of Syrah ) John Gabriel the wine maker at Coyote Canyon joined the celebration that night. In January he guided us through the blending of some rare to this region, spanish varietals.
These luscious grapes are grown in the beautiful Horse Heaven AVA at Mike Andrews 11oo acre vineyard. Mike who is the owner of the vineyard and Coyote Canyon Winery is making a name for the winery with his great selection of spanish grapes. His Alberino has won 5 double golds since it has been in production. They released their 2009 Michael Andrews Spanish Red this weekend. Check out the link to read John's tasting notes!
Enjoying the wine, the food, and the company set a top Tapteil's lovely vineyards on Red Mountain Friday night, you felt you could have been in the south of France. Thank you Larry and Jane for hosting such a wonderful evening. I am in love with your 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon!!! Cindy
