Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

($38) Inky purple. Utterly classic syrah aromas evoke blackcurrant, olive tapenade, candied licorice, spice cake, violet and minerals, with an emphatic undertone of cracked pepper. Fine-grained tannins add frame to sweet red and dark berry flavors, which are in turn complicated by Asian spices and black olive. Finishes with excellent mineral lift and great sweet persistence. Lovely stuff.

In contrast, the 2006 Syrah Las Colinas is a fuller-bodied, denser Syrah with more roasted meat, bouquet garni, charcoal, and blackberry fruit, a superb texture, and a long, heady, rich mouthfeel with stunning length. It is close to being a blockbuster Syrah to drink in its first 7-8 years of life.

Big and intense, yet also elegant and stylish, with peppery wild berry, sage, mineral, light sage and dusty berry flavors. Has great balance and length without heavy tannins.

Excellent. A little tight. Improved dramatically with some time and was even better the next night (finished it off). Dense thick blackberry. Still very young.

About This Producer


Radio Coteau works exclusively with small, cool-climate vineyard sites in western Sonoma County. Winegrower Eric Sussman's first vintage at the helm was 2001, after spending the years prior gaining experience with organic winegrowing in Washington and French winemaking in Bordeaux and Burgundy. Learning from the masters at the Chateaux Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1995 and Domaines Comte Armand and Jacques Prieur in 1996, Eric returned stateside with a strong commitment to producing wines with a true "sense of place." The winery crafts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Zinfandel, primarily from designated sites.
