Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($50) Bright ruby. Strongly aromatic bouquet offers fresh red berries, cherry, yellow rose and Asian spices. Taut, sharply focused strawberry and raspberry flavors combine energy with depth, gaining sweetness with air. Cool and finely balanced, with wonderful clarity and finishing minerality. This is really elegant.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 88-90

The 2006 Pinot Noir Terra Neuma exhibited austerity and leanness on the day I tasted it. The wine has a good dark ruby color, some harder tannins, and may just need time to flesh out and exhibit more character.

Burghound | Rating: 88

(from biodynamically farmed Sonoma Coast fruit - 190 cases produced and bottled at 14.4%) Lush and notably ripe red pinot fruit that offers up a hint of menthol and leads to rich, sweet and round medium weight flavors underpinned by moderately firm tannins and a touch of finishing warmth. I like the character of the nose though if the wine isn't kept reasonably cool, the warmth affects the balance somewhat.

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.
