Winemaker Notes

On a stunning hillside vineyard located northwest of Philo, Savoy's Pinot Noir grapes develop intense flavor over a growing season lengthened by the cooling maritime influence that funnels through the Anderson Valley. A complex patchwork of clonal selections, each block is farmed to its own specific needs. Hand-picked in the early morning and trucked to the cellar while the fruit is cold allows for optimum handling and whole berry integrity. With multiple seasons working with the fruit from this special site, Radio Coteau continues the practice of studying the depth of the Savoy vineyard. Each year has provided a platform to massage the noble tannin structure, refine its grace, retain ageability, and yet capture fresh vibrancy.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of three Pinot Noirs I tasted, all bottled unfined and unfiltered, the 2013 Pinot Noir Savoy is made from the Pommard, Martini and Calera clones, plus Dijon clone 115 that demonstrates the cool-climate cranberry, blueberry and sweet and sour cherry fruit of this area. The wine is elegant, medium-bodied, coiled tightly, but beautifully structured, while pure and impressive. It should drink well for at least a decade.

Eric Sussman first heard the expression radio coteau from a friend while living and working in Burgundy. More than a preference for how you discover these wines, the name reflects a commitment to capturing reflections of soil, seasons, people and place. In 2002, Eric established Radio-Coteau, focusing on the north coast vineyards of western Sonoma County and Anderson Valley. With their benchland locations, well-drained soils, exposure by capricious marine air and fog, these sites host grapes naturally suited to their surrounding elements. This natural selection afforded Eric an opportunity to refine his Old World experiences while working with New World grapes. For more than a decade, he has strived to balance nature’s expression with a delicate, but disciplined human touch in these handcrafted wines.

Anderson Valley, located in Mendocino County just above Sonoma County, is one of California’s coolest AVAs, allowing it a long growing season. Only 15 miles long, the region makes a slice eastward through the mountains, from the frigid Pacific Ocean. Dramatic diurnal temperature variations here preserve grape acidity and thus freshness in the finished wines. These are prime conditions for growing Pinot Noir, and the valley produces many fine versions. Characteristics of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir typically include crisp acidity, cranberry and strawberry notes as well as earthy notes of forest floor and mushroom.

Still Pinot Noir, however, is only part of the story. Pinot Noir, along with Chardonnay, are also grown for Anderson Valley’s exceptional sparkling wines. Produced via the traditional method, these offer a classic toasty note from lees aging, bright, complex fruit notes and a clean, refreshing character.
