Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($50) Bright red. Aromas of red berries, Asian spices, flowers and minerals offer a compellingly elegant profile. Fresh raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are impressive for their clarity and punch, with silky tannins arriving late. Clean and brisk, with great finishing lift and a lingering impression of red licorice. This is really sexy.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

The 2006 Pinot Noir Alberigi again displays the more muscular side of Pinot Noir, with a dark plum/ruby color and sweet notes of roasted meats, bouquet garni, truffle, and sweet cherry and plum. The wine is relatively heady, full, and like all of these, best drunk in its first 7-8 years.

Burghound | Rating: 89

(from Russian River Valley fruit - 436 cases produced and bottled at 14.4%) A very expressive and pretty, as well as very red pinot fruit, nose introduces delicious, round and sweet flavors that possess a moderately robust mouth feel as the tannins are ripe but clearly in evidence. I particularly like the depth here and while there is a trace of finishing warmth, it's really quite subtle provided that the wine is kept cool. Worth a look.

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.
