    Inky purple. Sexy, exotically perfumed nose combines boysenberry, candied violet, bitter chocolate, five-spice powder and woodsmoke. Sweet, lush and expansive but lively, with captivating flavors of dark berry preserves, floral pastilles, gingerbread and dark chocolate. Finishes juicy, spicy and very long, with fine-grained tannins and impressive energy. This is Sussman's first vintage for this wine, which comes from a vineyard in a very cool, coastal-influenced hillside vineyard west of Sebastopol; it was slated to be bottled in May.

    The 2008 Syrah Dusty Lane is big, rich and powerful. Black cherries, grilled herbs, spices and leather are some of the notes that come to life in the glass. The 2008 is a rich, deep wine, yet it possesses considerable muscle and structure as well. It is an exciting, thrilling wine with at least a handful of years of fine drinking ahead of it. This was a very late harvest; the fruit wasn't brought in until late October and early November.

  • 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.
