Willcox, AZ- November 8, 2011 – After 5 fabulous years, Coronado Vineyards wants to celebrate by welcoming two new wines to the family.  The new 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2010 FORE come from our wine grapes grown at the Coronado Vineyards property right here in the high deserts of Southeast Arizona.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich and velvety Cabernet with notes of black current and a soft oak finish.  2010 FORE is a lovely blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Syrah and Merlot.  You can be one of the first to try these great new wines on Saturday November 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Attendees will be welcomed with complimentary appetizers and sampling of the two new wines. Drawings for anniversary prizes will take place each hour all day!  Prizes include dinner for two at A Taste of Coronado Restaurant, unique items* from the gift shop and gift certificates to take home your favorite bottle of wine.
