2003 marked the first vintage for Tessa Marie Wınes. While searching for a perfect name for my new blend I came upon the French name Coquette. True to its name, the 2006 Coquette is a beguiling flirtatious blend of Sangiovese and Syrah that leaves you wanting more with every sip. Like a beautiful rfinest chocolate, Coquette has earned a place among the many romantic staples.
70% Sangiovese from Camp 4
30% Syrah from Camp 4
Aged in neutral French Oak for 19 month
Coquette presents playful aromas of bright red fruit, black currant and a hint of molasses. Wıth Sangiovese being its principal component, this wine has good acidity to marry beautifully with food, as well as wonderful raspberry and black cherry flavors on the palate. The supple tannins, spice and plum character in the Syrah, along with the new oak in this blend, creates a well-balanced fruit-forward wine to enjoy for years
