Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($50) Opaque purple. Sexy blueberry, cassis and floral aromas are complemented by smoked meat, dusty minerals and cracked pepper. Very pretty wine, offering seductive dark berry flavors, velvety texture and building spiciness. Utterly seamless, with superb finishing clarity and sweet persistence. I kept looking for rough edges but there were none to be found.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

There's gorgeous purity of fruit, offering a range of ripe, juicy blackberry and wild berry fruit that's intense, full-bodied and focused, with subtle, pleasing earthy, minerally notes that join the dark berry fruit on the long, supple finish. 375 cases made.

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.
