    ($38) Good medium ruby. Explosive, urgent, slightly high-toned aromas of crushed, briary dark berries, minerals, bitter chocolate and orange peel; smells like fresh grapes. Juicy, peppery and penetrating, with perfectly integrated fruity acidity. Mounts impressively and lingers long on the aftertaste, offering a captivating perfumed quality.

    A classy rendition of Russian River Zinfandel, with lots to admire. Ripe, rich, concentrated, with a medley of spice, pepper, nutmeg and wild berry fruit that's complex, well-structured and finished with firm, dry tannins, but in the end the ripe fruit pushes through.

    Big dark fruits and corn flakes on the nose. Loads of syrupy sweet fruit on the palate. Nicely structured already.

    From a dry farmed vineyard planted in 1937 and 1946, the 2003 Von Weidlich has an extremely intense and powerful nose of creamy red and black fruits (think International House of Pancakes Raspberry Syrup) and hot buttered rum scents. Due to 2003's heat this vintage is less claret styled than the 02. Great acidity (hard to believe considering this wine?s girth) and significant tannin. A gorgeous Zinfandel that has great balance despite its raw strength.

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.
