Eric Sussman first heard the expression radio coteau from a friend while working in Burgundy. Name reflects a commitment to capturing reflections of soil, seasons, people and place. In 2002, Eric established Radio-Coteau. Ruby with fresh fruit aromas with earthy spice scents. On the palate cherry flavors with spicy tea leaf notes, zesty in style. Fine tannins, great mouthfeel texture, lingering ending with and earthy character which you can almost taste the soil. Nice! Something special.

Red cherry, red raspberry, black cherry, a bit too much oak but very tasty and easy drinking.

A producer that finds itself included in my top five of true Sonoma Coast wizardry. The Las Colinas Syrah is always full the magic and Iโ€™ve found particular joy in the 2012 vintage of this La Neblina. The 2013 here was a little more nimble and lacked a bit of the depth the 2012โ€™s Iโ€™ve tasted have offered. Wishing there was some for day 2 but the King Salmon, roast squash, & shiitake mushrooms soaked it all up. A lovely wine thatโ€™s garnered by grace. The loudest voice is the one you donโ€™t first hear. Listen close

Gorgeous vintage. Really singing in the 2nd night. First impression was more of bright red fruits, cranberry being the most defined aromatically. More aeration revealed a much broader and darker fruit core of black cherries, with subtle earth components evolving into fresh fennel and mint flavors on the finish. The restraint and elegance is quite evident even in this very concentrated vintage. Oak is barely discernible. About as good as low alcohol New World Pinot Noir gets at this price. Wonderful balance, complexity and character.

Expressive California fruit with a solid streak of woodsy minerality. Wears its weight well with spicy tannin and piquant acidity. Exotic range of fruit but mostly steers clear of baking spice/cola territory, and minimal oak. Unfined and unfiltered, classically made wines from sunny climes.

Much lighter in style than traditional Sonoma coast pinots. I feel more time in bottle is necessary.
