Coattails Winery

Oregon
UK Exclusive

Brothers Mikey (Sequitur) and Jared (Domaine Roy) Etzel make a tiny amount of wine for fun every year, away from the pressure of their ‘real’ jobs. Of course, it helps if you can nick a bit of fruit from your dad’s vineyard! The brothers’ rendition of Sequitur is a fitting tribute to their loved ones and to this special slice of Ribbon Ridge: rich and refined, densely packed and with no hard edges. The perfume is just so evocative of this tiny jewel of an appellation. Here’s Jared on the project: “We started this label for fun while Mikey and I were still at college, it was a way of us staying in touch with each other and with the central theme of our lives growing up. Originally it was just me and Mikey but since then our brother Nathan has also joined. Coattails is our way of acknowledging those to whom we owe a debt of gratitude, or who have inspired us. First and foremost, it’s a tribute to our mother who died a few years back but also to our dad (Mike Etzel) and our uncle (the hugely influential wine writer Robert Parker) but there are others too.”
