Nebbiolo wines from the Piedmont region of Italy are amongst the most profound wines in the world. It seems a natural habitat for this highly finicky varietal, particularly in the two most famous appellations of Piedmont, Barolo and Barbaresco, where this grape reaches its pinnacle. While the new world will never produce something exactly like those wines, a cool acre in the corner of the Coyote Canyon Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills of the Columbia Valley Washington has something that hints of the promise for this grape in our backyard, capturing that distinctive marriage of iron and rose petals that Nebbiolo so deftly melds. Firm sharply focused tannins support tarry earth notes characteristic of the varietal. Yet, this wine is still on the delicate and approachable side, featuring rose and cherry notes, all supported by a velvety texture.
