Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($38) Inky purple. Utterly classic syrah aromas evoke blackcurrant, olive tapenade, candied licorice, spice cake, violet and minerals, with an emphatic undertone of cracked pepper. Fine-grained tannins add frame to sweet red and dark berry flavors, which are in turn complicated by Asian spices and black olive. Finishes with excellent mineral lift and great sweet persistence. Lovely stuff.

Excellent. A little tight. Improved dramatically with some time and was even better the next night (finished it off). Dense thick blackberry. Still very young.

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: Syrah

While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
