The Story: It may have been a bit of romanticism at the start, but Côtière's founders, Shala, and Kyle Loudon, were hooked the first day they worked at a small winery. Shala, whose family has a history with wine in Italy, and Kyle, a lifelong foodie, envisioned a future inspired by their pasts. Plenty of points test your resolve when you create a winery from scratch, but the spiritual sway of the land and wine is strong in California. These feelings run deep. In 2006 opportunities arose, and the first official and commercial release for Côtière began, and the rest as they say…

Vinous 94 Points: “The 2018 Red Blend Dérive, Côtière's Cabernet Franc/Merlot-based red, is such a classy wine. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, espresso, spice and licorice build in an ample, intriguing wine that delivers the goods. This is beautifully done.”

Notes: It's another successful, incredibly attractive red from this estate, offering lots of darker currant and black cherry fruit, medium to full-bodied richness, plenty of chocolate and leafy herb aromatics, good mid-palate depth, and a great finish. Drink this forward, pleasure-bent, sexy red blend over the coming 8-10 years.

Varietal Selection: 37% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot.
