Coyote's Run 2006 Red Paw Pinot Noir
"Where's the black paw?" I asked. " We ran out of time during bottling," I was told, "harvest commenced and we had to leave it till January.” Good enough reason I guess, so there's no comparison at this time. Back in 2004, Coyote’s Run made a name for themselves with their Red Paw and Black Paw Pinots - the grapes coming from either the red soil plot or the black soil plot that splits the property ... each soil imparting its particular terroir characteristics. In 2005, there was not enough Pinot to make different bottlings so they combined everything to make a 2005 Pinot. Now with a bumper harvest in 2006, we're back to distinguishing the red from the black grown grapes. The Red Paw has a nose of cranberry, sour cherry, and a variety of red fruits with a subtle earthiness. In the mouth, cherries and vanilla lead the charge, while a little bit of the earth creeps in, with a hint of tannins enroute to a finish that is smooth and tasty.
