Third and final bottle. Consistent profile of dark cherry. This bottle driven by forest floor, black licorice and sandalwood. Only distinctive difference is the tannins are more pronounced and now leaving a little sediment

Rating my second bottle of 2009. First was sometime 2014/15. This is so heavy, driven by deep dark cherry fruit and so much forest floor it reminds me of Brunello. Not as elegant as 2007 and 2008 vintages. But still very likable and I do like many of Eric’s wines (Terra Nuema, Dierke and his Riesling, namely)

Always the most silky and plush Pinot in the RC portfolio. Dominated this vintage with deep dark cherry, potpourri, sweet licorice, light green herbs and sandalwood. Still tight and could show well in the next two years.

Showing really well. Distinct CA fruit with a old world flare of tannin and acid.

Not as complex as most Radio-Coteau offerings. Fragrant nose of dried cherries. Nice hint of spice and orange peel on the palate. Tannins are firm but integrated. Don't expect much evolution from here. Good, not great offering, from a producer of amazing wines.
