Coyote’s Run 2012 Pinot Noir New!

★★★★

Here’s a value Pinot which is 25% Red Paw vineyard and 75% Niagara-on-the-Lake purchased fruit … and this year it’s an even better value bottle than in previous years. Nose has that Pinot-esque earthiness and sour cherry mixing with black cherry richness ...

Coyote’s Run 2012 Cabernet-Merlot

★★★★

As the regular 2012 reds begin their arrival excitement begins to mount for, what could be, some of the best reds Ontario has ever offered … of course that statement must have a caveat: as long as your winemaker knows what he’s doing. Dave Sheppard’s bee ...

Coyote's Run 2012 Pinot Gris - Red Paw Vineyard

★★★★

Usually when I put the words Coyote's Run and Pinot together I'm talking Noir, not Gris. Every time I try the Coyote's Pinot Gris I think "nice wine" while owner Jeff Aubry always tells me how great he thinks it is, and we dis-a-gris, until this year ... ...

Coyote's Run 2012 Gewurztraminer - "David Sheppard - Vi...

★★★★

With Dave Sheppard, winemaker, celebrating 30 years as the man behind many an Ontario bottle of wine, Coyote's Run decided to honour the accomplishment with a special bottling. This Gewurzt is going to become a regular feature at Coyote's Run with the sa ...

Coyote's Run 2012 Five Mile Red

★★★★

An interesting blend of Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah ... and while it might sound peculiar it works. Plenty of raspberry and cherry plus other black fruits and some nice red licorice notes ... the finish is lengthy and shows vanilla, cedar and ...

Coyote's Run 2012 Chardonnay - Red Paw Vineyard

★★★★

In a big year like 2012 you'd expect big, blowsy California-style Chardonnay ... but not from the likes of winemaker Dave Sheppard, who is celebrating his 30th vintage in Niagara ... that length of time means he knows how to handle his acid and fruit (tha ...

Coyote's Run 2011 Pinot Noir - Red Paw Vineyard

★★★★

I've always liked this juicy Red Paw Pinot, no matter the vintage, this one of the famous pair (with its Black Paw brother) has always been big on cherry yet delicate and elegant; the 2011 is no different. The nose is floral with violet notes along with ...

Coyote's Run 2011 Pinot Noir - Black Paw Vineyard

★★★★

Although production of this wine has doubled, due to recent expanded planting finally coming on line, the Black Paw Pinot is still 1/4 of the Red Paw vineyard's output. This year the Black Paw demands some serious attention - the nose has got beet, cassi ...

Coyote's Run 2011 Pinot Blanc

★★★½

When it comes to summer white wines nothing beats a really well made Pinot Blanc and winemaker Dave Sheppard has shown he has a pretty deft hand with the grape. But Dave is also quick to point out that the growing season has something to do with it too . ...

Coyote's Run 2011 Chardonnay - Red Paw Vineyard

★★★½

As a non-Chardonnay fan I find I have producers that consistently drag me back into the fold, Coyote's Run is on of those producers. In his 30 vintages in Ontario, winemaker Dave Sheppard's consistency no matter what the vintage brings, is amazing. This ...

Coyote's Run 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon - Red Paw Vineyard

★★★½

2011 marks the first year that Cabernet Sauvignon has been broken down into the now infamous Black Paw / Red Paw vineyard split at Coyote's Run. This 2011 Red Paw is red fruit dominated, soft and easy drinking with nice acidity on the back to balance out ...

Coyote's Run 2010 Unoaked Chardonnay

★★★½

The nose on this unoaked version of Chardonnay is fairly closed though it does offer up a little mineral and peach. The flavour seems a little more woken up with an apple core that's wrapped with mineral and pear. There is a subtle creaminess to the win ...

Coyote's Run 2010 Red Paw Pinot Noir

★★★★

There's two reasons I've mostly dug the Red Paw Pinot over the Black Paw from Coyote's Run. 1) I love the femininity of this wine, and 2) it's cheaper ... but seriously, it's that feminine quality and character that really gives it it's elegance. Perfum ...

Coyote's Run 2010 Red Paw Pinot Gris

★★★★

You have to be growing up on the wrong side of the soil if you haven’t heard that an Ontario winery has both red and black soils on their property and are planting their grapes on each to compare the results. That winery’s name is Coyote’s Run and their ...

Coyote's Run 2010 Red Paw Merlot

★★★★½

By now I hope you know Coyote's Run has two types of soil on their property - and on occasion split grape varieties out to see what the difference would be if each grape from each soil type was treated the same, but separated. There is no Black Paw Merlo ...

Coyote's Run 2010 Red Paw Chardonnay

★★★★½

For a non-Chardonnay fan I sure do seem to like the Coyote's Run Red Paw offering year-after-year, that's probably due to the wine not being dominated by wood. Yet again the 2010 delivers what I think Chardonnay drinkers are looking for these days. The n ...

Coyote's Run 2010 Red Paw Cabernet Franc

★★★½

It's been a staple at Coyote's Run to do it with Pinot Noir and a few times with Cabernet Franc ... and in 2010 it was once again time for Cab Franc to shine in the Red and Black soil spotlight. The difference is delicate versus heft. Red Paw has a very ...

Coyote's Run 2010 Rare Vintage Syrah

★★★★

This "son-of-a-bitch to grow" according to owner Jeff Aubry, turns into one of their most popular varietal wines - each and every year. If customers flock to the regular edition then they should come running for this rare vintage version. The nose is in ...

Coyote's Run 2010 Rare Vintage Pinot Noir

★★★★

Aged 16-18 months in French oak has rounded this wine out on the palate, but had intensified the nose. Aromas are spiced-raspberry, cherry, cranberry cocktail and white pepper ... but it's really the spice that take over sniffer-wise. I found it interes ...

Coyote's Run 2010 Rare Vintage Pinot Gris

★★★★

Purists of Pinot Gris steer clear, this might be something that is shocking to your ears: Pinot Gris fermented in oak and then aged the same way for a total of 7 months ... the result is a rich style of Pinot Gris with a bigger, fuller mouthfeel and spici ...
