Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

($40) Good deep ruby-red. Sappy aromas of black raspberry, mocha, coffee, cola and earth; shows a liqueur-like sweetness without coming across as heavy. Very ripe and silky, with black fruit flavors currently dominated by mocha, chocolate and underbrush. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins.

Burghound | Rating: 89

(from two different vineyards within the Sonoma Coast - 760 cases produced and bottled at 14.4%; $40) This is very subtly complex on the presently reserved nose, featuring notes of spice, earth, somber berry aromas and interesting sauvage hints that complement the rich, full and equally wild flavors that possess ample character if not great elegance or complexity. Still, this has real personality and distinctiveness that you will not find elsewhere.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

Supple, graceful and harmonious, with a rich, elegant band of black cherry, blackberry, red plum, spice and hazelnut. Impresses with its caressing texture and understated elegance. 760 cases made.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 88

A blended effort, the light, delicate 2004 Pinot Noir La Neblina (from Dijon clones) offers lovely cranberry and cherry fruit, good sweetness, medium body, and an accessibility that suggests drinking over the next 3-4 years.

Disappointing. The wine had no body or complexity. The color was almost watered down.

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
