    ($45; 50% new oak) Good bright ruby. Musky, brooding aromas of blackberry, licorice, minerals, black olive and smoke. Sappy, wild and concentrated, with excellent energy to the black fruit and flinty flavors. Like the Calinas, this is very dark fruit in character. Finishes very long, with dusty tannins and a flavor of bitter chocolate. This was superb in 2003 as well.

    Supple and fruity, with lots of spice, cigar box and blueberry flavors that are intense and vibrant. Finishes with a nice earthy edge and firm tannins. 350 cases made.

    The 2004 Syrah Timbervine exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with an expressive bouquet of blackberries, acacia flowers, charcoal, graphite, and forest floor. It is a big, full-bodied, aromatic, intense Syrah that should be consumed over the next 5-7 years.

    Nice nose. Great rhubarb tart red fruit smell, smoke. Hollow in the mid palate. Savory and sweet. Would have scored higher if mid palate had been better.

    probably has great potential, but I found it a bit closed and tight. There is lots of fruit and complexity lurking there, but it just didn't come together.

    Soft earth and mineral undertones bouquet, red fruit, mostly raspberry and white cherry. Soft and luscious raspberry with some licorice and subtle spice on the palate with a medium to long finish. Tannins are well rounded but give way to some slightly stronger than expected alcohol. A refined Syrah compared to most.

    Thick with licorice, plum, pepper, and smoke aromas. Good acid and already showing fine structure. More smoke, beef, and dark fruits in the mouth. I think I caught this wine at a difficult point in time during its evolution thus the greater than usual range in my preliminary score.

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.
