** $$ McLaughlin Vineyards Coyote White Wine, 2007, CT - Wine Review and Rating

Review: Coyote White Wine is produced in Connecticut by McLaughlin Vineyards from a variety of white grapes grown at its picturesque vineyards in Sandy Hook, CT. It comes in at 12% alcohol.

In the glass: It shows as a deep yellow, almost honey color.

On the nose: Funky, butterscotch vinegar elements.

On the tongue: A sweet plus tangy first note, the wine is said to be picking up elements from the apple orchard in the immediate vicinity. Perhaps that's part of the tang. A bit of a metallic note as the wine makes its way along your palate. Finish is quick, with an acidic up beat.

To sum up: One of the less-impressive of the McLaughlin whites, rating two stars on the Spirit of Wine scale.

  1. I found this light and crisp white wine, from portugal, and thought i’d pass it along to you. Its called JM Fonseca Twin Vines. They actually have a sweepstakes they’re doing for a trip to Portugal to see this amazing singer, Ana Free. The link is below:
