The 2008 Horsetail and Coattail Pinot noirs are the new wine releases of Jared and Mikey Etzel, sons of Beaux Freres winemaker and co-owner Mike Etzel.
Beaux Freres, French for “brothers-in-law,” is named for its founders, brothers-in-law Mike Etzel and Robert Parker Jr. After twenty years in business, two of Etzel’s “Beaux sons” make their own Coattails and Horsetail Pinot noirs. Second generation Jared and Mikey Etzel are following in Dad’s footsteps.
Coattails Winery Horsetail Pinot noir 08 $23.36 (any 12)
This is Jared and Mikey’s great value, ready to drink Pinot. We’re tasting the 2008 Horsetail this weekend and will post a note early next week. Only 80 cases were made, and the wine will disappear quickly.
Coattails Winery Coattails Pinot noir 08 $69.94
Jared and Mikey only make their Coattails Pinot noir in the best vintages. They will sell this high end Pinot primarily to top restaurants. Jared just returned from a trip to Las Vegas, where several famous restaurants picked up the wine for their lists.
We have a limited amount of Coattails Pinot noir 08. It’s a cellar selection and needs the same kind of time and care as their Dad’s Upper Terrace – and might yield a similarly extraordinary experience.
