We hear it all the time at the winery: although Sauvignon Blanc is the most recognizable white wine that we make, ours is something different. We produce it from Matthew's Station, another of our vineyards under the care and attention of renowned winegrower Steve Dutton. This wine began as a Private Label project we did for a local farm-to-table restaurant, but now we keep almost all to share at the winery. We love this wine for its unique balance of brightness and volume after a little aeration in the glass. The 2020 vintage shows notes of white nectarine and elderflower, with a trace of clove, and a minerality-driven finish of Persian lime.
Made from 70% Grenache Blanc, 16% Viognier, and 14% Roussanne, our 2019 RRV Reserve Cuvée Blanche is a uniquely Californian rendition of the great white blends of Châteauneuf du Pape. The 2019 vintage is a rare wine for us only our second vintage of this wine, but one with a remarkable difference from its predecessor. In 2019, the Grenache Blanc component spent 24 hours on the skins, yielding a golden richness in the finished wine. As such, the Viognier and its opulence have been attenuated slightly. Even so, this wine has a fairly rich profile, with notes of golden raspberry, spiced pear, green tea, and delicate allspice.
This is a red wine for white wine drinkers. It may even benefit from a slight chill. The Pinot Noir at Catie's Corner has some of the most complex floral and berry notes among all our vineyards. Catie's Corner is farmed for us by Steve Dutton, one of the most revered winegrowers of the Russian River Valley. The 2020 vintage is a natural-style wine featuring the vivacity, fruitiness, and crisp character relatable to white wines. This makes it especially complementary to richer pairings, such as creamy cheeses and deeply flavorful sauces. The 2020 vintage features layers of dense red berries and violets, a trace of espresso, and a sweet-tart accent of saskatoon berry.
The Pinot Noir at Las Nietas Vineyard has a particular finesse and elegance. Its delicate color belies its flavorful profile, which makes the wine playful and provocative. Las Nietas Vineyard is farmed for us by Bob Hartmann, and is named for his granddaughters ("Las Nietas", in Spanish). This is our coolest site for Pinot Noir, high above the Monterey Bay at the southern end of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Ripening is slow, usually extending into October. The 2021 vintage was fermented with 21% whole clusters. It has an emphasis on the 777 cutting, yielding rich notes of dried cranberry, with layers of baking spice, cedar shavings, and toasted brioche.
There is so much demand for Pinot Noir in the Santa Lucia Highlands that sometimes it's easy to forget how delightful the cool-climate Syrah is here too. Sadly, many growers have grafted over their Syrah to other things. We make our Tondre Grapefield Syrah from a field blend of uncertain heritage. It is the darkest, spiciest red we produce. We were excited to discover this small block in 2016, the same vintage when we started our Syrah at Las Madres Vineyard in Carneros to the north. We have made both wines ever since. The 2021 vintage shows less spice than some years, and features rich blackberry and bramble, with a hint of toasty pie crust.

Since 2007, Coterie has produced wines from tiny parcels within acclaimed vineyards that express the distinction of their place. We make every wine berry to bottle by hand with exceptional care in the vineyard and non-interventional practices at the winery. The winery is nestled in a cozy neighborhood near downtown San Jose, where it transformed an old warehouse into a beautiful place for wine.
